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.
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.
If you’re going to stay on the wild West Coast, it should absolutely be with a sea view and wide doors that open onto the beach. Die Strandloper is a relaxed Boutique Hotel that fuses beach style and luxury to offer you an unforgettable stay in the fishing village of Paternoster.
