Attractions & Activities

Paternoster, a picturesque fishing village on the West Coast of South Africa, with white-washed fishermens’ cottages and beautiful beaches, is a popular destination for both local and overseas visitors. The village is 145 km north of Cape Town, between Saldanha and St Helena Bay.

The Cape Columbine Nature Reserve is close by, with the last manually controlled lighthouse in South Africa and the well-known camping and fishing spot, Tietiesbaai. Whales and dolphins can frequently be seen just beyond the breakers and seals and penguins are regular visitors to the large boulders along the coastline.

Prolific bird life makes this a bird-watchers paradise. Rock lobster, for which Paternoster is renowned, can be bought from the fishing boats as they return to shore. Bokkoms, or dried fish, are another unusual local treat.

Sporting activities include kite surfing, snorkelling, kayaking, golf and swimming. Cycling around the village or a lazy stroll on the beach are popular with the less energetic!
