Staying on the Marina behind the V&A Waterfront is to be right in the hub of one of the main tourist attractions in Cape Town. From here one can visit Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for decades. Visitors don’t need a motorcar and can call an Uber taxi if we they need transport.
This is the view of the famous Table Mountain from the Marina.
The Waterfront is part of the working harbour of Cape Town.
Enjoy breakfast while watching the harbour activities.
We later went to Blaauwberg from where you get wonderful views of Table Mountain across Table Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
The small village of Blaauwberg has lovely restaurants with magnificent views.
The beautiful turquoise waters are typical of the Atlantic Coast.
This artistic display was outside one of the local restaurants.
Views across Table Bay from Tableview towards Table Mountain.
That evening we went to Grand Beach Cafe near the V&A Waterfront for sundowners and a light meal. The sea was calm and there wasn’t a breath of wind.
People on board this yacht were enjoying the calm evening.
Drinking South African wine while watching the sun set is a local tradition in Cape Town.
A last boat sailed into the light craft harbour, which is quite near the main Cape Town harbour.
We had a lovely meal with our toes in the golden sand at the Grand Beach Cafe.
