Anytime from Novembet to May the weather is good : sunny, dry, very warm if not hot during the day, slightly chilly and breezy at night.

Those who have been in November do recommend that time of the year.

It is possible that the humidity can still be a bit high in November but generally it is good. Nice and warm and sunny. As John says anytime till May is good.

My favorite time is November everything is much greener, sea warmer and its still warm at night.

From Jan onwards you need a cardi at night and everywhere is dusty plus sea is freezing!

Kololi is the main tourist area and usually very busy and bustling. Kotu is a bit further out and quieter and then Cape Point is further away and quieter still. All have their own attractions and nice beaches but it depends very much on what you are looking for in a holiday. Fortunately transport is cheap so you are never too far away from anything ...
