Cape Town’s summer offers the perfect weather for your holiday. Warm clear days (26 – 30C) and cooler nights


Windsurfing and Kitesurfing is the main reason why our guests come to Cape Town, but there is so much more to do. Paragliding, hiking, yoga, stand-up paddling, food markets, shopping, beach walks, museums and galleries, amazing restaurants and bars, cycling, wine tasting, safaris, sky diving, experiencing the culture, concerts or simply relaxing and unwinding at the pool.

The City

The Mother City is pulling out all the stop, flashing her beauty and appeal to foreigners and gathering awards around the globe for her sublime tourist offerings – Cape Town has been voted the world’s best city four years in a row.


From laid-back, lekker-local fish and chips in Kalk Bay to ultra-modern fusion at the Pot Luck Club in Woodstock, from perfect cappuccinos at Origin cafe to fine dining overlooking the Camps Bay promenade – the choice is yours.

Try to reserve a table at The Test Kitchen or pack a picknick and spend the sunset on the beach or on table mountain.

The food options in Cape Town are simply phenomenal!

Oh, and did we mention wine? There are more then 200 cellars within a couple of hours’ drive of Cape Town, and four main wine regions – Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschchoek and Wellington. Explore art galleries, sip some fine wine and sample local dishes in luxurious wine estates.
