Nelson Mandela Gateway information
Tours of Robben Island depart from the Nelson Mandela Gateway beside the Clock Tower at the Waterfront. Even if you don’t plan a visit to the island, it’s worth dropping by the museum here, with its focus on the struggle for equality. Also preserved as a small museum is the Waterfront’s Jetty 1 , the departure point for Robben Island when it was a prison.
