Pringle Bay History



Pringle Bay was named after Rear Admiral Thomas Pringle and it was originally meant to be a port for shipping farm produce across False Bay to Simon’s Town. During the 18th century the area, especially the Drostersgat cave was a hide away haven for many army deserters, prisoners and runaway slaves. During the Second World War a radar station was built. The Italian prisoners-of-war who were used to build the Clarence Drive were held prisoners in Pringle Bay.
