Paternoster Beach is one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in all of South Africa, set in the tranquil holiday town of Paternoster, Western Cape. Located up the West Coast, Paternoster is a favoured weekend destination for Capetonians. If you have been here once, you are likely to never forget the beauty of the white sands, spectacular sunsets, stunning West Coast vegetation, charming fishing boats, and friendly residents.
Paternoster remains a laidback fishing village where you can buy freshly caught crayfish from the locals straight off the boat. The beach is fantastic for walking, sea kayaking, birding, whale and dolphin watching, windsurfing, and horse riding. If you’re looking for a little adventure, you can enjoy beach buggy trips along the coastline, land and boat based fishing, as well as plenty of leisure activities. Don’t forget to visit the nearby Columbine Lighthouse.
