Whether you’re seeking a world-class hotel on the beach or a quiet little beach house to holiday in, Paternoster offers a wide range of seaside accommodation. What is most surprising about this fact is that despite the variety of attractions this small seaside fishing village offers, it is still considered one of the hidden gems of the West Coast landscape.
Stroll onto the beach to dip your toes into the icy Atlantic waters, or take a walk down to the historic Paternoster Harbour: you’ll find freshly-caught fish and crayfish (when in season) offered by the local fishermen, a quaint market for mementos to take home, and you’ll surely be dazzled by the picturesque views of the fisherman’s houses and sailboats that dot the Paternoster coastline.
Die Strandloper is an internationally-renowned seafood restaurant in Langebaan: a growing seaside town on the Cape West Coast.
Famous for serving ten delicious courses over 3 to 4 hours in their rustic open air restaurant, nothing beats their delicious homemade bread and freshly-caught seafood – all prepared in true West Coast style.
Named after the nearby Wolfgat cave – an archaeological wonder hidden in the small seaside town of Paternoster – the Wolfgat restaurant is a similarly “small but significant” attraction of the West Coast.
Officially named the best restaurant in the world in 2019, Wolfgat is an intimate 20-seater restaurant that offers award-winning seasonal seafood, locally sourced and hand-foraged.
