Cape Town Events in June 2018

Our listing of the best Cape Town events in June will give you an updated events calendar with some of the best events in June 2018. Cape Town is known for its 'moody' weather in winter. The usually breezy days are maybe not for sunbathing, but the wildness of the coastline is something you have to experience. Temperatures can get a cold 13 degrees C, but when the sun is out, temperatures are often as high as 25 degrees C. So much for winter! And this year especially, don't we all long for a little bit of rain! So please make sure to stick to the water restrictions and save as much water as possible to keep our taps running.

There is plenty do and enjoy in Cape Town in winter, no matter if the sun is shining or it is pouring outside. Watch how fast the clouds accumulate and disperse over the ocean and take in one of the most stunning sunsets you will ever see when dining out at any of the seaside restaurants along the Atlantic coast. And some have cozy log fires, so no excuse for not heading down to South Africa during winter!
