Horse Riding and lovely views.
Enough to do, great restaurant options, quaint town, friendly, sea side.
We had breakfast at Cathy's and it was a real treat, not only are they affordable but the food was superb! Love the ambience and the vibe in Paternoster. Everyone definitely needs to make it a point to visit this little town at least once in their lifetime.
Walking the beaches covered in shells and seaweed and other lovely stuff. Seeing so many Whales I couldn't count them.
Walking the paths surrounded in the special fynbos. The flowers are so beautiful!
The 3 restuarants I dined at were really good ~ Voorstrand, Paternoster Lodge and Blikkies Pizza.
And the staff all very friendly!
The Town is amazing, felt like we had gone back in years. Beaches super clean, which was fantastic, no litter laying around.
We found the service in the restaurants to be very poor and way over priced. We went for breakfast at the Crayfish Wharf and waited over an hour for our food to arrive and the restaurant was not full. Staff not friendly at all. Also went for a dinner and just as bad. Would think the staff would be more helpful and excited to have guests after the last year that we have had! We will definitely not go to restaurants when we go back and wouldn't recommend any to our friends. Quite sad though as the little town is gorgeous.
Was also very concerned with the people selling crayfish on the side of the roads as the tails they were selling were way undersized. There needs to be more checks as these people are raping our oceans. It was not crayfish season and they were undersized, baby tails! Stricter controls should be put in place as there were a few people selling.
White sandy beach and variety of restaurants.
Pretty little town with a great restaurant.
The walk on the beach was lovely.
Visiting At Botha's studio was great.
The pizza's and service of the restaurant BLIKKIE was exellent.
I adore the beach.
More info about Paternoster
In France they call them Les Plus Beaux Villages – the most beautiful villages – and the tiny fishing village of Paternoster on the west coast of South Africa fits quite comfortably into this category. Once a tiny enclave bypassed by travellers heading north from Cape Town, Paternoster is today a thriving seaside destination.
Paternoster’s wide, open beach is dotted with brightly-coloured fishing boats and the old white-washed fisherman cottages have been upgraded and are mostly used as holiday homes. On weekends, visitors arrive to dine on fresh seafood at one of the many restaurants overlooking the beach.
The Cape Columbine Nature Reserve is located at the southern end of Paternoster where a popular camping resort and the Columbine lighthouse is situated.

About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
