Paternoster on the Cape West Coast of South Africa

Paternoster is possibly the most scenic and romantic fishing village on the Cape West Coast, reminiscent of a typical Mediterranean seaside village. Azure blue waters, lime washed seaside cottages, delicious seafood delicacies from the ocean and crisp ice cold white wine complete the perfect picture.

The laidback tempo at which this magical seaside resort ticks will bring any city slicker back for more of the same.

The town which lies approximately 150km from Cape Town is home to more or less 1000 inhabitants who still today earn their living from the azure blue waters of the West Coast Ocean catching their quotas of crayfish. On a good day you can bargain for fresh West Coast Kreef (crayfish) on the roadside.

Paternoster, meaning “Our Father” in latin, allegedly, took its name from the solemn prayers of shipwrecked Portuguese sailors.
