It is situated in the oldest working harbour in the southern hemisphere, with the iconic Table Mountain as its backdrop and extensive views of the ocean, city bowl and mountain peaks.  A mixed-use urban waterfront development seamlessly merging ocean vistas with mountain views, fresh sea breeze and the warm African sun add zest to a cosmopolitan and vibrant atmosphere.   More than 80 restaurants bring a fusion of international food, from rustic al fresco fish and chips to starched table-cloth cuisine.  It also offers 12 hotels, over 500 retail options, 7 museums, live entertainment 365 days a year, and a variety  of leisure options (ranging from yachts, helicopters to penguin encounters at the Two Oceans Aquarium) and prime residential and commercial property.  Along with 22 heritage sites and tourism landmarks, the V&A Waterfront also includes the recently opened Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) – hosting the world’s largest collection of contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora.   The V&A Waterfront is also operator of the newly upgraded Cape Town Cruise Terminal – 5 minute walk from the V&A’s new Silo District.  Of the total visitors to the V&A, 60% are Capetonians, 17% are South African and 23% international.
