The constant reminder that Cape Town was once more than just a beautiful city. Today the former prison island is open to tourists who visit by ferry from the V&A Waterfront. Essential to book well (like weeks) in advance on their website. Ferries to Robben Island fill quickly.
Daily, but ferries only depart at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Catch the ferry from the Waterfront, near the clock tower.
