When to Escape

Thanks to its coastal position, Cape Town enjoys a temperate, Mediterranean-type climate for most of the year. Summers can be very hot, but are often balanced by a cool sea breeze. Mid-winter can be very cold, with snow falling in the surrounding mountains. Whichever time of year you choose to visit Cape Town, however, don’t be surprised if you end up experiencing four seasons in one day, it’s renowned for it.

Mid-October to March

This is Cape Town’s summer, with temperatures varying from mid-20s to mid-30 degrees Celsius, with little rain. Days are long and perfect for evening entertainment, sundowners and long days on the beach.

April

This is autumn in the southern hemisphere. Daytime temperatures are pleasant, cooling towards evening, making it more enjoyable if you’re not a lover of heat. At this time of year, the colours of the many vineyards in the Constantia valley and Stellenbosch are a beautiful sight.

September

This is spring in Cape Town, when the famous west coast flowers put on a dazzling display of colour and whale watching is at its best.

Whale watching along the coast, especially at Hermanus, runs from June to November.

This place makes a really exciting short break from the UK whether for three days or more.  You’ve got sunshine, beaches, fab restaurants and bars, a huge choice of accommodation and amazing day trips on your doorstep (make sure you go to the Winelands!)”
