Bo Kaap Museum - De Waterkant 


13h00 Leaving the Bo-Kaap Musuem head straight across the road and along Rose St several blocks until you
reach the busy Strand St (which – if you were driving – would lead you to Sea Point). Wait for a safe point to cross the road and take a left. Walk until Chiappini St takes you to the right and then go left on Waterkant St. You are now in Die Waterkant!

Parker Cottage Guesthouse recommends visiting De Waterkant

De Waterkant

De Waterkant was part of the multicultural all-accepting Bo Kaap until 1966 when the National Party enforced the Group Areas Act and nearly every non-white who lived on the sea-side of Strand St was evicted. In an ironic cultural twist the neighbourhood is now extremely liberal and the gay centre of Cape Town!
