Paternoster is not so holy anymore....
Unfortunately Paternoster has swollen out of all proportion since the last time I visited six years' ago.It is now just a tourist destination, and I would not really want to go too often.The beach is lovely and there are a couple of great restaurants such as the Noisy Oyster and Square Spoon, but otherwise I would prefer to be somewhere not so cash-orientated and where life is gentle and pleasant. Altogether too snobbish, busy, full of 4x4s and Lexus cars, and very expensive.

We paid a 50% deposit and then got told that we need to pay R500 additional for a no breakage fee (I have no problem with this). The problem I have is that 11 days later the no breakage fee has not been repaid. Paternoster is a very popular destination and is booked to the brim every weekend with visitors, taking into account all the deposits the Stay In Paternoster travel agency is pocketing interest...see more
Paternoster is still truly a fishing village. Although development has occurred, Paternoster seems to have managed it well in that the new blends in with the old. I drove around to take a look at development since I had last been there, and it is truly wonderful to see such creativity while still keeping to the spirit of a small beach village. The monitors appear on the beach as the boats come in to ensure responsible fishing, kids appear at the local store for sweets and snacks after school. Support the locals make a living - buy handmade wall decorations made from sea-shells. The Council...see more
