Family fun on the beach

Weather and tides

Plett is renowned for its hot yet pleasant summers and wet mild winters. It is characterized by almost year-round sunshine with hot summers (October-March), with temperatures rising to 27°C (80,6°F) and sometimes even touching the mid-thirties Celsius (mid-nineties Fahrenheit).

Winter is typical of the Cape Coastal area, fluctuating between mild, clear weather and cold, rainy days during the rainy season. One can expect to be changing clothes as the day progresses from the cool dawn through the warm day and into the cool night.

Rest assured though, that in general, the weather of Plett will greet you with a hospitable display of sunshine and temperance.
