Life's a beach in Western Cape

Western Cape is a perfect holiday destination for indulging your inner beach bum. This South African province has everything – from glitzy beach party hubs like Camps Bay Beach to the secluded and closely guarded secret that is Water's Edge. You can explore them all on a road trip down the Garden Route, but if you want variety, you can head inland and discover that there's more to Western Cape than its beaches. Staying at Western Cape vacation rentals by the beach will let you savor all these delights in style.

Things to do

The Garden Route: 1 road trip, all the beaches and more

The Garden Route is one of the best road trips in the world, and it's right along Western Cape's southwestern coast. You can drive this 124-mile stretch at your own leisure and be enchanted by ever-changing views. It's called the "Garden Route" for a reason – you'll be driving through lush greenery sandwiched between mountains and the sea. The beach towns along the route have Western Cape vacation rentals where you can take a break from driving and chill at the beach, hike nearby trails, or visit vineyards and historic monuments.

Activities

From the depths of the sea to the tallest peaks and beyond

You'll be spoiled for stuff to do while you're in Western Cape. At the beach, you can go swimming with the fam, play a friendly beach volleyball game, go diving or snorkeling, or surf the waves. If you visit between May and December, you're likely to spot whales close to the shore without even leaving your beachside Western Cape vacation rental. Beyond the beach, you can tour The Winelands for a sensuous culinary feast, head to the dymanic city of Cape Town, or go on a soul-searching hike up Table Mountain.

Weather

Western Cape: where summer never ends

If you're a true-blue beach bum, you probably won't want to leave Western Cape, like ever. Summer never ends in this beach-lovers' paradise, and you can worship the sun and sand any time all year long. Western Cape's Mediterranean climate means the weather is mild all year, though it can get chilly from May to July (Western Cape's winter months) when coastal temperatures can drop to 44F. Winter doesn't last long down there, though. You can expect warmth and sunshine by August, plus a profusion of springtime wildflowers.

Natural features

A visual feast worth protecting

Though its beaches are magnificent, Western Cape has more wonders inland. This L-shaped province is separated from much of the rest of South Africa by the Great Escarpment and dominated by the sandstone mountains of the Cape Fold Belt. The lush valleys and forests of the Garden Route in the south are a contrast to the semi-aridity of the Karoo in the north. Much of the province is heathland, and the amazing diversity of Western Cape has led UNESCO to declare it a protected zone named Cape Floral Kingdom.
