The Waterfront Village is favoured by families for many reasons that include the location of the village, its luxurious standing, services, facilities and the appeal of the village’s proximity to the V&A Waterfront. The Two Oceans Aquarium is within walking distance, offering hours of entertainment and a family-friendly restaurant with a supervised play area, allowing mom and dad a chance to rest! There is often a musical or theatrical production happening at the amphitheatre in the Waterfront to entertain the kids, movies in the shopping centre, boat trips and much more. Parents will be delighted by the beachfront attractions in Mouille Point, such as the Putt-Putt course, the Kiddies Blue Train and the Serendipity Maze, only 5 minutes drive away from the Waterfront Village.

Carefully selected babysitters are available, allowing you to enjoy the city while you are assured of your children’s comfort and safety.
Drive along the exquisite coastal drive to Hout Bay and visit the unique bird and monkey sanctuary named World of Birds, enjoy lunch in the harbour and then stroll along the beach. Drive along Chapmans Peak and you’ll arrive at a farm village in Noordhoek, with several restaurants and a lovely play area or spend the day at Imhoff’s Gift, a farm turned children’s paradise with a snake park and camel rides!
Alternatively, take a turn to Boulders Beach in Simonstown close by and watch penguins swimming with bathers on this unique beach sanctuary. Drop by scratch patch on the way back and let your children choose their own semi-precious stones and crystals.
Carry on back towards Cape Town via Kalk Bay, an antique trawlers paradise, and enjoy tea and cake in restaurants situated on the rocks, with the waves breaking nearby. Take another day to explore the world renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, 528 hectares of gardens that support diverse fynbos flora and natural forest snake trail. If you’re lucky enough to attend a summer sunset concert on a Sunday, you’ll be privy to a performance of brilliant local and sometimes international talent. End another perfect day with a walk on the beach near the Waterfront Village, with a gourmet ice-cream cone in hand and appreciate the beauty and simplicity of nature.
