Why Green Point is relatively wind free

Green Point flag

Green Point lies in the lee of the famous mountain range that includes Devil's Peak, Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Signal Hill.

This means that it is relatively protected from the infamous "Cape Doctor" which is a rather strong south-easterly wind. The "Cape Doctor" blows away pollution and gives Cape Town some of the cleanest air in the world.

But it also means that a day out on Camps Bay or Clifton's beaches can leave you sandblasted. But while those beaches are being battered, the beaches from Granger Bay through to Sea Point can be pleasant as they are protected from the fierce winds.
