    Clothing & Dress Description

    An informal atmosphere prevails all over the Cape. For most, casual dress is normal and in summer months shorts and tee shirts are the order of the day for both sexes. Some restaurants do require 'smart casual' dress in the evening.

    It is worth noting in the Summer, as the evening temperature falls it can feel quite chilly and it is worth taking a warm top out with you.

    Some businessmen wear suits and ties and these are quickly discarded in warmer weather.

    Most certainly a decent pair of SUNGLASSES.

    Almost essential is a HAT or CAP

    For most of the time comfortable walking footwear or trainers. Maybe casual smarter footwear for evenings.

    Being a Winter rainfall area Cape Town can be wet from May to August. Coats, rainproof jackets and brollies are advisable during this time.

    Also, Topless female sunbathing and swimming is not officially allowed.

    Please remember we are very casual in Cape Town !!!
