Doringbaai is a quaint fishing hamlet 8 km south of Strandfontein, and has a population of about 1 300. The fishing settlement was originally an anchorage from where camel trains were used to transport provisions to towns like Vanrhynsdorp. Richard Fryer was one of its earliest residents.
In 1925 the North Bay Canning Company built a crayfish packing factory in the town. The factory closed in the 1970s and has since been converted into a business hub which includes a restaurant, a winery with wine tasting facilities as well as a functions venue. Other interesting buildings include the Doringbaai lighthouse that was built in 1963, and the Roman Catholic Church.
