Somerset West weather conditions are extremely variable. Somerset West is part of the wine lands area near Cape Town, and experience a climate that is similar to many places in Europe where grapes are grown and it depends heavily on the season. The winter is cold with lots of wind and rain, and the summer is blissfully warm (sometimes bordering on boiling hot). The South African sun is extremely powerful, and if you are planning on coming to visit Somerset West for tourism purposes in summer or spring then I suggest buying some great sunscreen.
What is really great about Somerset West weather conditions is that they are not always the same as those of the areas around them. This means that if it is cold and rainy in Somerset West, you might be able to take a short trip to some better conditions. Somerset West is near Cape Town, which itself experiences four seasons in one day so it is likely that you will find at least one spot that the sun has reached that day. The West Coast sea is mighty chilly, but still worth a dip on a sunny day. There are incredible beaches in this area including Muizenberg (best known for surfing), Clifton (best known for tanning) and Sandy bay (the cape’s very own nude beach). So there is something to do at the sea for everyone.
If you are interested in wine tasting then Somerset West is an ideal place to stay. Whether the climate is filled with sun, wind or rain, wine tasting is an enjoyable activity. The Cape is home to many wine farms, each with their own selections of delicious wines that are available for sampling. The wine tourism industry is booming which means you can get great deals on incredible wines. It is a thoroughly enjoyable activity that can be enjoyed regardless of the Somerset West weather conditions.
