De Waterkant is an upmarket area ideal for holidaymakers who want to be where the action is. With a vibe similar to Shoreditch – London or Amsterdam, there are plenty of places to enjoy your next meal, washed down with local craft beer or wine.
De Waterkant is home to Cape Town’s coffee shop culture providing plenty of opportunities for people watching. The selection of cafés are neighboured by a variety of local shops as well as a handful of unique arty shops.
Enjoy a stroll through the cobblestone streets soaking in the architecture and atmosphere of this cosmopolitan area rich in history. In the eighteenth century De Waterkant was Cape Town’s slave quarter, now a declared a heritage site and National Preservation Area.
