The V&A Waterfront, an Accessible Destination

Nestled between the icon Table Mountain and the icy Atlantic ocean, The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is one of the most visited destinations in Cape Town and it's not hard to imagine why.

Filled with shops, restaurants and places of entertainment the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, is a shoppers paradise. It is a destination which offers something for everyone with 360 deg spectacular views of Table Mountain, Signal Hill and the Table Bay Harbor. Most importantly however it has access for everyone; young, elderly, abled bodied and those with disabilities.

Situated in one of South Africa's oldest working harbours, the V&A Waterfront attracts more than 23 million visitors a year and is home to many who have taken up residence, in what has to be some of the most sort after real estate in Cape Town.

Spoilt for choice with retail stores boasting international and local fashion, homeware, jewellery, as well as restaurants with a variety of cuisines, the Waterfront (so called by the locals) is a hub which is as cosmopolitan as New York, London or Amsterdam.

If shopping isn't your thing, then you can relax with a glass of your prefered drink and eat some pub grub as you listen to live music at Ferrymans Irish Pub and if you really want to experience the harbour as the seafarers of old first did, then you can take one of the many boat trips either; around the harbour, to Camps Bay or to Robben Island.

For a spot of culture you can visit the Zeitz Mocca museum of contemporary art which has numerous breath-taking exhibitions.

Though there are no golf carts for those with mobility reduction, howver you will find it easy to get around if you use a mobility assistive devices as the V&A Waterfront has been designed with access in mind.
