This beach is ideal. Long, open, clean beach sand. Lots of open space to sit, play and walk. Although the water is rather chilly, it is a good spot to swim for the brave. A wonderful spot.

Beautiful long, white sandy beaches - can walk for hours. The community will have to get to grips with the level of petty crime - it is starting to impact tourism.

We visited Paternoster just for one full day and decided to have a walk along the beach. It's a very long and sandy beach with quite rough waves. There weren't many people swimming but a lot of walkers and I stopped to speak to some...More

Paternoster Beach seems to go on forever. It's perfect for long, peaceful walks or runs as it is never really crowded.

This is a world class sandy beach stretching for miles with a soft and gentle current. Definitely worth a visit and a picnic at the very least.

It was a windy and cold and although beautiful, the litter was a spoiler. It took the joy out of a long afternoon walk on the beach!

I love this beach for the texture of the sand. The sheltered bay allows for minimal exposure to the west coast weather. It is realitvely uncrowded and safe to use, except for the odd crayfish seller.
