When Is the Best Time to Visit Cape Town?
If it’s a beach holiday in Cape Town that you are after, then the best time to go is from late January to late April when the weather is warm and dry. Watch out for the fierce south easter wind which blows through Cape Town sometime between December and February. This can make for unpleasant beach holiday conditions, although there are always magnificent calm days between the winds.
For hiking and mountain biking, April to early June is ideal as the days are fresh and crisp. If you’re heading to the city for some wine tasting and fine dining, you might prefer to visit from late June to August when fires are lit, rains fall and the days are generally cooler, making it the perfect time for wine tasting!
If you’re interested in whale watching, the best time to visit Cape Town is between July and September when tourists can spot the migration of the southern right whales.
