Cape Town Kitesurf Holiday Overview

Cape Town is a kitesurfing holiday destination that ticks all the boxes. The wind conditions in and around Cape Town are very reliable with wind speeds usually between 20-30 knots with the strongest wind coming between 2 and 6 in the evenings. South Africa's best wind is present during the summer period from November through to February. The coastline in and around the Cape Town area is home to many beaches that do not only boast fantastic kitesurfing conditions, but simply breathtaking natural beauty too.

But there is more to Cape Town than just kitesurfing. Whether you are looking to unwind, explore or be entertained in your time away from the surf, Cape Town and what lies beyond has plenty of alternative activities for those rare non-windy days and for the non-surfing partners and family.

Kitesurfing Spots In Cape Town

River Mouth or Lagoon Beach

Lagoon Beach is the nearest spot to Cape Town located only a short 10 minute drive from the city centre. The beach here is of a good size with a nice shallow area for the first 50 metres. The rising tide at Lagoon Beach tends to be smaller than at some of the more northerly destinations which makes it suitable for beginners and intermediates as well as those wanting to try some easy wave sailing.

Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach is one of the main kitesurf locations with a good rising tide building and the best wind coming in the late afternoon. There are no general facilities for non-kitesurfers here unless they are staying at our Sunset Beach hotels which is right on the spot.

Dolphin Beach

Dolphin Beach is another popular kitesurf area with a very large open beach area that also has a very large open beach area. Dolphin Beach is favourable for groups that include non-surfers who can access the facilities at the Dolphin Beach Hotel.


Langebaan makes for an excellent day trip located about one and a half hours drive from Cape Town along the scenic coast. The wind here is often stronger than in the Cape Town area and offers super flat water conditions that are perfect for freestyle junkies or beginners. There is a windsurf and kitesurf school located here which offers rental and instruction options as well as many very good cafes and restaurants. 

In And Around Cape Town

There is a huge amount to see and do in the Western Cape. Planet are South African specialists and we have a huge amount of experience and expertise in this area. We would highly recommend speaking with us about combining your holiday with some of what this fascinating country has to offer.

Wine Country

The famous Cape vineyards of Western Cape begin only a thirty-minute drive from Cape Town. Western Cape is the largest wine-making region in South Africa with picturesque vineyards stretching for miles against an impressive mountainous backdrop. The South African Rand's relative weakness to the pound means that wine-tasting sessions are inexpensive and luxury wines and dining can be acquired at favourably low prices. 

Floral Region 

South Africa has the third highest level of biodiversity in the world - a title that the Cape Floral Region helped to secure. The area contains more plant species than the entire British Isles. A visit to Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, located at the foot of Table Mountain, is one way to access the wonders of the Floral Region. 

Garden Route Road Trip

Spanning 950km, the entire Garden Route is a wonderful addition to your holiday. The trip has some lovely views that are well worth checking out.

See What Our Clients Say

The Bay Hotel has a great location, slap bang in the centre of Camps Bay you can't get a better spot. In saying that it's not noisy at all which is surprising considering the location. I stayed in 401 overlooking the pool, the sea view is stunning and the balcony caught the sun all day and the sunset at night. Very good value for money!
