As one of the most scenic cities in the world, Cape Town has a beautiful Mediterranean climate to go with its panoramas. While June is the official start of winter it is actually quite mild hovering around the low 60’s which means a light jacket, some flexibility in plans, but great opportunities for low season perks like affordable and less crowded hotels, restaurants and excursions.
The charm of Cape Town are its domineering views, wild oceans and majestic plains. Earth Sea and Sky in Cape town come together to form fantastic representations and it is no wonder people settled here. Whether you choose Table Mountain, Gordon’s Bay or Victoria and Alfred Wharf, views of the city are the dominant attraction. The rainier and cooler weather which keeps tourists away this time of year is not as bad as in July and August, in June there are sunny days and most cloudiness present in the morning clears up by midday.
The confluence of native African culture and the Dutch settlement has produced a society that is very unique. Local traditions have melded with European ones. What does this mean for the visitor? Luxury hotels that offer high standard European hospitality blended with African happiness, art and exotic treasures in almost any place you go. The One and Only, Twelve Apostles and Taj are some of the top hotel expressions. Home and Apartment stays are very popular too: on sites like HomeAway and Airbnb.
Western Capers are some of South Africa’s friendliest people and it is easy to see why. When you interact with tour guides, staff and almost anyone there is a pride they have in their city and they are happy to show it off. People are very adjusted to tourists in general and we felt welcomed and service was so intuitive most places we didn’t even have to ask, our needs were anticipated.
The fertile landscapes and seascapes of this area bring a lot to the plate. Cape Town is home of some of the world’s top ranked restaurants and the nearby wine country (just 40 minutes) brings the perfect pairing of Pinotage and other wonderful grapes. These world class restaurants are much more accessible than in other parts of the world, especially in the low season of June-August, so be sure and book a table at The Test Kitchen for an unforgettable experience.
You can do so much in Cape Town just in the city itself. Getting out on day trips can be thrilling too. Don’t forget there are wonderful wine tours, whale watching, balloon rides, hiking, and surfing too.
The famed seven major tourism attractions, most people want to explore are: Cape Point, Robben Island, Groot Constantia, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch and the V&A Waterfront with free WiFi provided along the way.
