a) November till April Ц considered by a majority in the know to be the excellent weather for summer vacations. From December Ц ideal for beach, boat-trips, mountains hikes.
b) For those who prefer cooler weather, recommended months are May Ц September. Pleasant weather in the afternoon, but chilling down at night.
c) Summer in Winter: Even in so-called Capetownian winter you could experience 2-4 sunny days per week when temperatures would rise above 20-24.
If you happened to spend some time in the Western Cape during winter and you still wish to enjoy summer sun, sun-tanning, swimming etc. then we would recommend you to go to Avalon Springs or other such places Ц where the summer is all year around. Only about 2 hours drive from Cape Town : from winter into summer.
