Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Pringle Bay, South Africa, Your Home Away From Home

Pringle Bay is a charming little seaside town on the Western Cape of South Africa. Mass tourism has passed this place completely by, and it is home to artists, actors and musicians who wish to enjoy the coast in relative peace. By taking a holiday rental cottage in Pringle Bay, you too can have a taste of the good life. With all the modern conveniences that make life comfortable, self catering accommodation in Pringle Bay means that you can enjoy your holiday at your own pace, and not feel that you must adhere to a hotel schedule. A holiday in Pringle Bay is suitable for everyone, especially families who desire a safe, hassle free environment.

Things to Do on Holiday in Pringle Bay, South Africa

Despite Pringle Bay being a quiet coastal resort, there are a wealth of activities to do, should you so desire. The sea of course plays an important part here, and so swimming, snorkelling and diving will be the first things that come to mind. If you want to do a spot of fishing, then a permit will be required. Bird watchers will enjoy the opportunity to spot many species of native birds as they walk up and down the beach. If you want to see a little more of the local area, then hire a bicycle if your holiday rental cottage in Pringle Bay does not already have them, and see for yourself how beautiful this part of South Africa really is.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Pringle Bay, South Africa

The immediate area around Pringle Bay is certainly worthy of further exploration. If you can, try to visit the Drostersgat cave which is an adventure in itself to reach. Nearby Bettys Bay is home to a botanical garden and penguin colony, both of which are worth spending time at. Whilst you are there, you could also visit the old whaling station and art gallery. If you have the use of a hire car, then a trip out into the countryside would be a good idea, and you could visit some of the many vineyards scattered throughout the region.

We loved the beach and collected lots of cool shells. Gordon's bay is a lovely town, close to the wine farms, great shops and 45 min from Cape Town.

This is a very picturesque and unique house very well equiped and in a wonderful location. the views are superb and sundowners are wonderful on the balcony . Plenty of room and I cannot thing of anything that is missing. Highly recommended with only one drawback. This house is built on a steep slope and can only be accessed by using the many steps. People with limited mobility would have difficulty, in particular the steps down the side of the house are made of rough stone and are uneven making the trip up and down to the beach and local resturant needing care. This is the one and only critisism that can be made. A wonderful house
