The dry season in the Western Cape tends to be extremely hot and crowded by tourists. Safari at this time of the year is the best, since animals flock to the limited water sources, and it's easier to see them. This is also a good time to go for a swim since the ocean is not that stormy. However, you might consider to choose the first or last months of dry season, since late spring and early autumn are more comfortable and offer more scenic natural views.
Llandudno Beach, Boulders Beach, Beta Beach, Glen Beach, Oudekraal Beach, Long Beach, Muizenberg Beach, Queen’s Beach, Fish Hoek Beach, or Melkbosstrand Beach are just a few from the list of Cape Town's amazing beaches. Choose one of them to spend your unforgettable vacation.
