A Paradise Found

Weather

Cape town accommodation

SUMMER: September April 

Cape Town has low summer rainfall and temperatures reaching 28-30C or higher on beautiful days. The hottest days are often cooled by the "Cape Doctor", the famous South-Easter breeze which keeps the city free of pollution.

WINTER: May August 

The winters are cool and can be wet, but the temperature hardly ever falls below 10 C.

CLIMATE

The water temperatures in the Atlantic are low, due to the above-mentioned Benguela current, but east of the city the influence of the Indian Ocean is noticeable, and the beaches and seaside places on that side of the Cape Peninsula are more populated. The beaches in the west do have the advantage of protection from the South-Easter by the Table Mountain massif.
