Ultimate convenience right on your doorstep

The Breakwater offers a lifestyle that includes the ultimate in retail and entertainment convenience right on your doorstep.

Stroll across the road to Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre and enjoy over 266 specialty stores, major retail outlets, food merchants, curio markets, craft workshops and barrows.
The Alfred Mall, situated on the historical Pierhead, offers 21 specialty shops, boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops with a nautical and African flavour.
Experience a rich melting pot of cosmopolitan culture and history at the Historical Clock Tower Precinct, or lose yourself in the renowned Watershed, a retail innovation where 150 of South Africa’s crafters provide a selection of high-quality, contemporary hand-made products.


For resident foodies who appreciate fine cuisine or need a quick bite, The Breakwater is ideally surrounded by over 80 eateries, where you can invite friends for tapas, family for a festive lunch or that special someone for sushi.

The Breakwater provides access to picturesque running routes (2.5km or 5km), where you can jog or take a leisurely walk. Linked canals offer an opportunity for an organised morning swim, or join a group of SUP enthusiasts who enjoy arranged Stand-Up Paddling.

Life at the Breakwater is a unique experience – follow the smell of freshly baked bread to the local bakery, pop in at the Victoria Wharf for a coffee or enjoy the sunset overlooking the harbour for sundowners.
