The aquarium is decent, though there was construction going on, so that might have affected my opinion of the place.
The marina is alright. Full of what you'd expect to see there - excursions, restaurants, a couple of street performers, etc.
The Ferris Wheel is a nice touch, but the shopping mall seems out of place. Too bad that this mall gets more visitors than any other tourist attraction in all of Africa.
The two stars are the Craft Market, which was quite good, and the Food Market, which was great.
Definitely worth an afternoon, and some of the evening, since just about everything else closes around 4:00.

... Cape Mountain zebra, bontebok and the elusive eland. The reserve is also one of the world's largest breeding grounds for tortoises.
Then we visited Cape point and did 20 min hike to light house. It was very windy day up there. Following the coastline along False Bay, we returned to Cape Town by way of Simon's Town, where we visit the Penguin colony at Boulders Beach, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens.
Day 23 - Sun 21st Dec.
A trip down to the V&A waterfront with Di and Neil. A bit of a mooch about and then another long fishy lunch.
Returned to camp for more drinks as Jane & ...
Today was our first full day in Cape Town. We are all very tired from our long plane journey, but happy to finally be here.
We walked from our apartment along the canal to the V&A Waterfront which is where all the boats dock. Along the way we saw a large golden statue of a seal named Oscar. I felt good to be back in Cape Town ...
