Stroll down meandering paths that explore the meticulously crafted and maintained flora, it contains many examples of fynbos. This plant exists as a huge part of the Cape Floral Kingdom and is unique to this part of the world. Tired of walking beneath the boughs and leaves, you can always relax on the lawns and indulge in a picnic of wine and cheese. There are also two restaurants and a shop, with an indigenous nursery and a sculpture garden. Finally, the Boomslang is an amazing canopy walkway which provides visitors with brilliant vistas of the surrounding nature.

The Canal District links the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Town Convention Centre (CTICC), with water taxis providing an easy transport option between both points. It also reintroduces the old connection between the city, its waterways and the sea along pedestrian landscaped walkways and bridges. The canal introduces a leisure element with kayaking and stand-up paddling events. Battery Park at the Canal District includes a piazza with paved walkways, benches, a grassed area and indigenous gardens to relax in. Other elements include a skate park, basketball court, eateries and coffee shops.
With all this and even more on offer, it really is no wonder that the V&A Waterfront joins the ranks with Cape Point, Groot Constantia, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Robben Island and Table Mountain Cableway as Cape Town’s Big 6.
