The Western Cape region

Overall, the Western Cape climate is typically Mediterranean, with warm, dry summers and mild, moist winters.. Near the coast, summer’s temperature rises from a pleasant low of 15º C to a heart warming 27º C. The 'Cape Doctor' is a south-easterly summer wind which clears Cape Town air of any pollution. Coastal winters see the mercury dropping to a mild 7º C at night and rising to a comfortable 18º C by day. With the onset of spring from August to October, the whales come to calve and the spring flowers displays are spectacular.


Conveniently situated on the False Bay coastline between Fish Hoek and Simon’s Town,the mountainous subhurb of Glencairn offers sea views, a wetland nature reserve and walking trails.The beach is sandy and there is a tidal pool. Southern right whales can often be seen during whale watching season. It is a short drive to historic Simon's Town, the Penguins at Boulders and Cape Point Nature Reserve. It is a 35-km drive to central Cape Town and the Waterfront. The vineyards of Constantia are a short 15/20 minutes drive away and it is a scenic one hours drive to Stellenbosch. Chapman's Peak Drive, several golf courses and Kalk Bay are all close by. It is a great base for cyclists, hikers, horse riders, divers and water sports enthusiasts.
