On a day where the wind lies low, this place really is paradise. The water is clear and gentle, and full of swimmers without fear of dangerous currents. Pringle Bay is two minutes away with beer and picnic supplies, and there's a feeling of safety...More

Beautiful beach, unrivalled views. Awesome spot for a lazy walk with the family. River ideal for small kiddies to play around in. Clean, private and well kept. Well worth the drive

Nice beach to swim at with the family. Not much rock so it is save for children or just to walk the dog

Need to unwind, go for a long walk on this clean, white sand beach watching dolphins play in the waves. Experience amazing sunsets over False Bay and breathe in the freshest air straight from the ocean. This is what makes living in Pringle Bay worthwhile.

Belle Mer guest house. Our favourate place over 5 weeks of touring South Africa. Outstanding in all aspects and so relaxing. Nothing was too much trouble.

where we could access the beach, it looked rocky and weedy. Not a surfing beach but litle kids would love it. Very few people which is great, seems a nice community.

Our 9 year old begged to come here every day! Life guards on duty while we were there. Beautiful white sand. I was surprised it wasn’t busier.
