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.
