Best time to visit Cape Town

The best time to visit Cape Town is anytime. However, for the best weather visit during the summer months from December to March when the average maximum temperature hovers at 26°C (78°F), and the famous (but often fierce) southeasterly wind known as ‘Cape Doctor’ brings a welcome breeze.
