Most of the top Brands are represented at Canal Walk. The mall offers large open spaces in a safe environment. This mall compares with international malls. The local and international tourist will enjoy the shopping experience.

Even though Canal Walk is smaller than Gateway, it feels bigger. The architecture, choice and layout definitely exceeds anything gateway has to offer. It however remains a mall, albeit a good one. All the major brands are present. Good choices for food.

Biggest mall in Cape Town. Plenty of parking spaces and good security. Lots of shops of all kinds and plenty of restaurants. Still not a very high end feeling, rather sometimes a bit rough on the edges. Very easy access to/from Cape Town area.
