With the Cape summer usually extending from Nov until March and 11 hours of sunshine to be enjoyed in mid-summer, this is the most popular season in Cape Town. But, it can be windy too – with the prevailing “South-Easter” as it’s affectionately known, it can mean less beach time but perfect for hitting the waters on a hobie-cat, or wind-surfer! With plenty of beautiful beaches lining the coastline, the waters of the Atlantic sea offer a cool respite on those hot summer days. Surfing, diving, cycling, hiking, walking, or just lazing on the beach are top of the agenda.

The “secret season” though, in our opinion, is either spring or autumn. With milder temperatures, less wind, and not too much rain, the crowds have left and you can still enjoy most outdoor activities. Nature is also at its best at these times; the West Coast wild flowers are a dazzling display in spring and in autumn, the spectacular colours of the vineyards are a sight to behold.
