I’m not a Capetonian by birth, but by breed. I’ve lived in this beautiful city since October 2010 and am still in awe of her beauty every day. Cape Town always quietens during the winter months, which means that there are some fantastic winter specials running everywhere from hotels to restaurants, spas and salons. I like to take full advantage of these in the colder months. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favourite things to do in Cape Town in winter.
Winter in Cape Town is the perfect opportunity to combine three favourite winter pastimes: sampling great cuisine, enjoying good company and sitting in front of a roaring fire. Tempting as it may be to stay indoors snuggled up under the warm covers, there are so many delicious restaurants with warm fireplaces to visit this season.
If there is one thing Capetonians are good at, other than socialising of course, it’s braaing. Whether it’s meat or fish, you can be sure that on a spectacular summer’s day (winter too!), you will find us gathered around the fire, enjoying each other’s company, the tantalising aroma of meat on the grill and our breathtaking city views.
