Cape Town in June

June is the first proper winter month in Cape Town and sees chilly, rainy and windy days. Daytime temperatures only occasionally climb above 20°C and evenings are usually wet and cold.

Whale watching season starts in June.

Where to go

  • The whale watching season starts in June when the gentle ocean giants migrate north to warmer climates. Sightings are best in False Bay, Gansbaai and the town of Hermanus, about 1 hour from Cape Town.

  • Robertson in the Cape Winelands hosts a popular wine festival at the start of the month called the Wacky Wine Weekend.

  • Experienced surfers prefer Muizenberg in winter as the waves are best this time of the year.

Travel tips

While outdoor activities are limited by cold weather, Cape Town’s social scene is still buzzing with plenty of indoor events. If you can handle the colder weather you’ll save with lower accommodation and flight prices too.
