This picturesque village is well known for its down-to-earth West Coast atmosphere.
It is a popular weekend and holiday destination and has a reputation as a foodie haven. Paternoster offers its visitors seaside holiday experiences, peace, tranquillity and some of the most beautiful natural scenery and beaches to be found along the coastline of South Africa.
Every season provides a different experience. From November to February, the Paternoster summer is hot enough to match its high energy holiday season. March & April bring cooler mornings and evenings but still enjoyably temperate and sunny days. May to July things get chillier, greener and cosy evenings spent in front of the fire with a glass of wine or mug of hot chocolate are the stuff of Instagram posts. In August , September and October we see a profusion of bright indigenous flowers that colour the town and surrounding area, while enjoying the sight and sounds of birds, tortoises and nature waking up for spring.
There is something for everyone in Paternoster from long walks on the beach, pottery & art classes, yoga sessions, shopping and eating anything from local crayfish and sushi to delicious pizza. For the more energetic there is horse-riding, beach buggy tours and kayaking.
