The best time for a Cape Town beach holiday is from late January to late April, the tail end of the city’s dry summer months.
Cape Town enjoys a temperate climate with warm, dry conditions from October to April. Temperatures peak between December and February, which is the most popular time for a Cape Town beach holiday. Expect busy beaches, a vibrant nightlife and gloriously sunny festive cheer. Cape Town’s fierce South-Easter wind blows hard during this time, occasionally clearing the beaches and blanketing Table Mountain in cloud.
By February the wind calms and most visitors head home, making late January to April absolutely fantastic – expect better rates, uncrowded world class beaches and less wind.
