Solo travel can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be boring. Whether you’re on a quick business trip or in need of a little adventure, the charming town of Pringle Bay has some great activities every solo traveller should experience on their visit.
Visit an art gallery
There are two art galleries in Pringle Bay, Art Zoo and Chadoka Art and Bicycles. Art Zoo is an art lover’s internet cafe, exhibiting pieces from local artists, and offering a pop-up dining experience and exotic juice bar. Chadoka is owned by a local artist, Takura Chadoka. His work is displayed throughout the studio and he is also a talented screen-printer.
Join a tour group
There are several independently-owned travel guides in Pringle Bay that are tailor-made to accommodate your needs. Once you’ve booked your stay at our beach house, you can reserve your spot on the popular group mountain biking adventure through the Kogelberg Biosphere.
Go wine tasting

Visit the iconic Hook Line & Sinker restaurant
This iconic seafood restaurant has been around for more than 20 years. The owners are the hosts, waiters and chefs. It is popular for its fresh fish, prawns, steaks and chocolate pots. Bookings are essential and the average spend on a meal is R150.

Getting around in Pringle Bay and the Kogelberg Nature Reserve
If you are an adventurer looking for anything but a laid back holiday, we recommend booking your own 4×4 hire with sufficient luggage space for all your hiking or camera equipment. Alternatively, renting a car would be just as convenient depending on how many passengers. Travelling at your own pace will make your holiday much more memorable. You can curate your own itinerary. Travelling by public transport or booking a transfer can be a tedious and expensive exercise.
