Parents retire, and lucky for me when mine retired they moved from Welkom in the Free State, to the small coastal town of Pringle Bay in the Overberg. Pringle Bay is situated at the foot of the Hangklip Mountains, and is the opposite side of False Bay and Cape Point. The town and surrounds are part of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve (a UNESCO Heritage Site) and the bay is named after Rear-Admiral Thomas Pringle of the Royal Navy, who commanded the naval station at the Cape in the late 1790s.
Situated between Betty’s Bay and Gordon’s Bay, recommended access is via the gorgeous coastal road Clarens Drive which offers the most amazing view across False Bay.
We spend much time in Pringle Bay and surrounds as a family, and I never tire of the site of the rolling waves and pure white beaches as you come over the sand dunes onto the main beach. Great choice Dad and Mom!
