We have sunny, temperate champagne-type weather nearly 365 days per year!
Our weather complements our breath-taking beaches where in summer the water temperature ranges from 18 to 21 degrees Celsius and in winter between 14 to 19 degrees Celsius, allowing ideal opportunities for snorkeling, diving or surfing.
The sea conditions are generally calm in the Bay, except when the South-easterly wind is blowing. Wide expanses of golden sands are ideal for safe and sheltered swimming and other water sport and beach activities. Most beaches are patrolled by fully-trained professional lifeguards during the summer season.
The city has three Blue Flag status beaches: Humewood, King’s Beach and Wells Estate. The Blue Flag is an international award given only to those beaches that meet excellence in safety, amenities, cleanliness and environmental standards. South Africa is the first country outside of Europe to win Blue Flag accreditation for its beaches.
