You may get rid of Cape Town, as Antalya in southwestern Turkey has 3241 hours each year. Esfahan, in southcentral Iran gets even more with 3274 hours and Kralendijk in the far, far, far southwest Netherlands gets 3300. This place only has a tiny population though.

Honourable mention for the UK: Bognor Regis, 1903 hours

Nope. Not a typo, and no trolling. You need to brush up on your geography.
