South Africa - Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

The V&A Waterfront with Table Mountain as a backdrop is one of the biggest tourist attractions in South Africa. The V&A Waterfront has many Shops and Restaurants to visit.

This is from Wikipedia : The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in the historic heart of Cape Town's working harbour is South Africa's most-visited destination, having the highest rate of foreign tourists of any attraction in the country. Situated between Robben Island and Table Mountain and set against a backdrop of sea and mountain views, it offers a variety of shopping and entertainment options to visitors, intermingled with office locations, hotels (such as the historical Breakwater Lodge - once a 19th century prison) and luxury apartments in the residential marina.

It houses the Nelson Mandela Gateway which offers boat trips to Robben Island, as well as the Two Oceans Aquarium.
