Only 90 minutes drive from Cape Town up the Cape West Coast you’ll find Tietiesbaai. This is a pristine and relatively unspoilt beach despite its popularity. The beach is located in the Cape Columbine Nature Reserve which boarders Paternoster.
The area is great for camping so you’ll often find groups of friends enjoying their surroundings and families enjoying the time out in the sun.
Enjoy a few different hiking trails from the area and if you time it just right you’ll have the most magnificent sunset views. And one little bit of history is that Tietiesbaai is home to the last South African built and manually controlled lighthouse. The lighthouse stands at 80m above sea level and was built in 1936, ships sailing from Europe are able to see the powerful beam.
