The suburb of De Waterkant is walking distance from the Cape Town city centre, and only a short drive to the V&A Waterfront and the Table Mountain cable car. A normal business area during the day, it transforms into a lively attraction for an evening out, with some of the city's best restaurants, wine bars and deli's.
Featuring many 18th century cottages, the walk towards the "Bo-Kaap" takes you past the area with the most buildings built before 1840, surviving the fate of many similar areas throughout the years of Apartheid. The cobbled streets are lined with trees, and the views are some of the most spectacular that any suburb has to offer. All this makes De Waterkant a very sought after address for young professionals and niche retailers and restaurants.
