We took several boat excursions of the canal, harbour and ocean and they were very worthwhile. There were many nice restaurants and this is where you boarded the red buses.

Central place to hang out. We enjoyed looking around and ate at the Fish Market twice. You can get anything you need here either eating or drinking or shopping. Ethnic music just makes it and the views up to Table Mountain are lovely.
