White sandy beaches, blue seas, fishing boats and seafood – these are just a few of many things that make Paternoster a popular getaway. Whether you’re looking for camping, budget self-catering or a luxury five-star lodge, there’s something for you in this guide to Paternoster accommodation: where to stay on the West Coast.
Compared to 30 years ago when there wasn’t much more than a hotel and a sprinkling of old fishermen’s houses, it’s hard to believe the growth that’s happened here. Hard to believe the prices too; browsing the windows of estate agents revealed an average of around R3 to R5 million if you want to buy your own house, with a few coming in at an astonishing R9 million.
Here’s how you can get a piece of Paternoster heaven, even for just a few days.

And of course, there’s a boatload of things to do in Paternoster, including long walks on the beach, kayaking, whale-watching, a visit to the Cape Columbine Nature Reserve and lighthouse, and the delight of sampling a few of the 14 Paternoster restaurants.
Note: I was a guest of Abalone House and Paternoster Lodge for one night each, but had free rein to write what I liked. I paid for all travel costs.
