A Wonderful night away - Pringle Bay is close enough to Hout Bay, Cape Town to be able to make it a one-night visit, but far enough away that you feel you've been away. We arrived early Friday morning. There is plenty to explore in Pringle Bay, beautiful clear waters, lovely walks (we went to Hangklip Light-house), and found the most amazing restaurant - Bistro 365 and Simply Coffee. Would have wanted to have stayed longer unfortunately Saturday afternoon commitments didn't allow for that. It is a really LOVELY village, in the true sense of the word. One block for the "town centre". Felt like we'd been there longer, it was so relaxing.
Pringle bay - Lovely lagoon, wide, quiet beach, clear water, views, easy access to beach friendly, helpful people, young age group, small and not built up yet. Think there should be a chemist or something similar available.
Great beach - Great beach, not many people, clean and lots of space. Nice lagoon for kiddies.
Quaint - Lovely windy sunny laid back.
Lovely location - It is a short drive from Cape Town and also a quiet getaway from city life although it's around the corner. It is one of those discreet little coastal places where you can find your soul and rescue yourself and succumb to a world hidden from the rest of Cape Town. It is a jewel nestled among the mountains, a true lost world.

Lovely and quiet small town with great coast - Pringle Bay is large enough to have a few lovely restaurants and small enough to still feel like you're out of the city. Lovely long beach and incredible fynbos with dramatic mountain backdrop makes for a beautiful vacation spot. Do be aware of the wind as it can make the nights cold or make it impossible to go to the beach, but all in all really lovely!
Pringle Bay - On a good day the beach is fantastic and the restuarants in the village are outstanding especially Hook Line and Sinker, it's what a fresh fish eatery should be. Intimate and great food.
Lose your heart to the Bay - Great people, shops, nature and proximity to Cape Town
I liked it so much I invested in property there !!
Hook Line and Sinker - There is a small restaurant in Pringle Bay called the hook, line and sinker. You need to book as there are only 5 tables but the food and the vibe is out of this world!!
You basically sit in and around the kitchen and the very eccentric chef cooks your meals in a properse fire place.
A definite must for anybody new to the area!!
pringle bay - its the place to be, not to far away en lots and lots to do (beaches, birds, beautiful fynbos, hiking, ens.....go and enjoin it.....

Fall in love with Pringle Bay - If you are looking for a relaxing holiday or weekend getaway – far from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet close to civilization – Pringle Bay is the place to go! This quiet and relaxed village has plenty to offer. It is situated only 67 km from Cape Town International Airport, along the Whale Coast in the unique and beautiful Kogelberg Biosphere.
Pringle Bay’s picture perfect white sandy beach is surrounded by sand dunes on the one side and the ocean on the other. The beach is about 2 km long and set against a backdrop of mountains covered by our unique and beautiful fynbos. Across the ocean you can see Table Mountain. The river mouth is the favorite spot for children.
The gravel roads add to the feeling of relaxed holiday mode and traffic can not be heard from the R44. As there are no street lights the beauty of the African night sky can be enjoyed without light pollution.
In Pringle Bay you will find a variety of places to eat and even a local biscuit “factory” making irresistible treats.
If you wish to enjoy the beauty of nature, stroll along the beach or take one of the many hikes in the area. Harold Porter Botanical Garden is only 10 minutes drive from Pringle Bay, there you can go for a stroll or hike. In Bettys Bay you can rent boards and go sand boarding on the dunes against the mountain – lots of fun for all ages, or why not visit the penguin colony or take a guided birding hike. During winter stop along the beautiful Clarence Marine drive to spot the magnificent Sothern Right Whales.
Whether you come for a weekend or a longer holiday, chances are good that you will leave rejuvenated and re-charged. But be warned, chances are also good that you will want to return to this beautiful haven again and again.
Nice but windy - Very nice but too windy - great beach!

Pringle Bay experience - As a family we had a lovely time. The beach is clean and a lovely place for long walks. Just be careful of the baboons. I have never seen such clever creatures (criminals).

Seaside escape - A quiet seaside town, with great walks on the beach and lovely views. A great place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Take the family with for fun in the sun and festive braais in the evening.
