The Boardwalk – other activities

When it comes to entertainment, this beachfront precinct offers up a multiplicity of fun and excitement for business travellers, families and romantics.

The Boardwalk Multi-media Lake Spectacular is the signature attraction of the “must see, must do” Boardwalk experience.  It is one of the largest musical water extravaganzas South Africa has ever seen. This water spectacular is crafted with the latest individually illuminated hydro static valves; the fountain shoots jets of water into the sky with compressed air. The individual fountains are choreographed to dance and move to an infinite variety of musical scores. The spectacle is free for anyone to see from The Boardwalk promenade, providing a fantastic sight for locals and tourists alike, as well as wonderful entertainment for restaurant guests seated along the water’s edge.
