This is where Nelson Mandela was kept a political prisoner along with other political prisoners. Is it a short boat ride from the Nelson Mandela gateway at the V & A Waterfront. The tours were given by ex-prisoners who now live on the island. It was a humbling experience for me.

Address: P.O. Box 51806 Nelson Mandela Gateway
Directions: V&A waterfront and just book a trip from there
