This week, the Mother City has a little something for everyone: markets to complete your Christmas shopping, meetings with Santa for the little ones and late night parties to get you in the festive spirit.
Nothing gets your holiday started quite like a good party and Camps Bay’s latest hotspot, St Yves Beach Club, is more than happy to oblige with their midweek shindig. Expect to be entertained by local chart-topping artists and DJs, like Crazy White Boy, Shaun Duvet and Chad Tyson.

Monday: Maximum temperature of 27°C, clear skies, no chance of rain
Tuesday: Maximum temperature of 30°C, clear skies, no chance of rain
