Cresta is a suburb of Randburg, South Africa, situated near the border of Johannesburg.

Although it is mostly a residential area, in the middle is Cresta Shopping Centre, for which the suburb of Cresta is most well-known.[2]

However, Cresta is located in a logistically good area, considering that the N1 highway passes nearby, as well as Beyers Naude Drive, both main roads to and from the CBD and the Greater Johannesburg area.[3]
