What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Air quality is good. Locals talk about the "Cape Doctor," the winds that come down from the mountains and blow the air pollution out to sea. Some people may experience seasonal allergies. - Oct 1, 2017
Very good. Probably the best I've experienced in an urban environment. - May 13, 2014
The air quality is excellent, due to the moderate to strong winds that regularly blow. Called "the Cape doctor" by locals, it keeps everything fresh and clean. - Aug 26, 2013
