"Dry docks at the Waterfront" Top 5 Page for this destination V & A Waterfront Tip by CatherineReichardt

V & A Waterfront, Cape Town: 71 reviews and 130 photos


Most of the time, I tend to dismiss the V&A Waterfront as a bit of a tourist trap, but that attitude never seems to persist once I actually get there, as it undoubtedly offers a huge amount to keep the tourist occupied.

Apart from the staple offerings of the brilliant Two Oceans aquarium and the Robben Island ferry terminal, it's easy to overlook the fact that the Waterfront is still a working port, with dry docks and other related infrastructure. Watching the crews work on the ships can be a magnet for technically minded - particularly small (and not so small) boys - and what's even better is that it's free!
