Local Area:
Paternoster is a small, quaint and picturesque fishing village about 145 km (90 minutes drive) from Cape Town and 15 km North West of Vredenburg. A favorite weekend getaway destination for Capetonians, Paternoster is one of the oldest towns along the West Coast and is famous for its abundance of crayfish. Paternoster is an all year round destination and popular for its traditional fisherman’s architecture and endless pristine sandy white beaches. Visitors to Paternoster delight in watching whales and dolphins frolicking in the ocean 10 months of the year, and after the first spring rains the landscape is transformed by the millions of indigenous flowers which open and densely carpet the earth in bright bursts of colour, usually between late July and September. For bird lovers, Paternoster is home to over 250 species of birds with seabirds, cormorants, sacred ibis and the oystercatcher using this coastline as their breeding ground. Activities and attractions include beach buggy trips along the coastline, long walks on the beaches, fishing, boat and land-based cray-fishing, diving and spearfishing excursions, hiking trails, mountain biking and sea kayaking. Visit the nearby West Coast Fossil Park and the Cape Columbine lighthouse, the last manned lighthouse built in 1936.
