100 Beautiful Experiences

Not many neighbourhoods in the world offer so much outdoor beauty and harbour action during a fitness mission, and we love that exercise fanatics have full, free access to our unusual walking, running and cycling routes.

17. Cycling

One of Up Cycles’ drop-and-go locations is at our Silo District, which means you can rent a bike by the hour, seven days a week, and take it all the way through our neighbourhood’s cycle route, past Chavonnes Battery Museum and over the swing bridge to the other side. You can even cycle beyond our boundaries and drop off the bike at the Sea Point Pavilion or in Camps Bay. Children’s bikes and carriers make this fun for the whole family.

For an educational experience while cycling, book one of AWOL Tours’ three-hour joyrides. This bike tour, which departs from our Clocktower, allows you to see your city from a different perspective. Hear from one of AWOL’s expert guides, explaining interesting historical facts about the Mother City as you ride all the way through Green Point Urban Park and along the Sea Point prom.

18. Running

Some of Cape Town’s most picturesque running routes can be accessed in our neighbourhood. Jog at your own pace on our two sign-posted routes – 2.5km or 5km. Trot along our coastal boardwalk, over canals and bridges, and past some of our most iconic properties in this pristine, safe environment. Grab a map from our information kiosk opposite the Nespresso store to view all our pedestrian walkways.

After the success of 100 Beautiful Things, where we celebrated creativity, compassion, ingenuity and resilience, through projects, products, ideas and experiences from around the country, we’re bringing this idea of celebration closer to home. Through 100 Beautiful Experiences, we’ll be looking at incredible moments and delights that are available right on our doorstep. Photographed and illustrated by a group of young South African talents, many of our experiences are unique to our hood and can be found nowhere else on the planet!

Every visit to the V&A Waterfront is an opportunity to discover a different part of the city, learn about our heritage, source the best products, dine on the most exquisite fare and connect with friends and family in a safe and happy environment. While we’re only sharing 100 Beautiful Experiences with you, we know you’ll find many more each time you visit, and look forward to hearing of your experiences too.
