    I took a 90 minute bike tour of the park with WOW-E bikes from Paternoster. It was a fun experience riding bikes that took all the hard work out of cycling and I had two excellent guides who pointed out many features of this deserted and quite barren area. We saw a whale carcass on the rocks too...a bit sad.

    Paternoster beach is a large broad curve of sand and it is beautiful. But the water (in February) was SO COLD! I don't mind cold water swimming but even I could not stay in for more than a few minutes. It must have been about 7 degrees Celsius! Don't let that stop you jogging, strolling and enjoying the beach. But think twice before you take a plunge!

    This is a wonderful studio oozing talent and beautiful works of art ! The lady who owns this studio is a fantastic artist to watch and we were made to feel most welcome . Beware - you may have to pack an extra bag to take home all the wonderful goodies on sale in this fab studio !

    This is a beautiful & quiet beach in Paternoster, which unusually has no building development. Great for a long walk, as it goes on for miles.

    Situated at one end of Paternoster’s beach, there is an art gallery & a few eateries & coffee shops. There is a great place to hire electric bikes too.

    We explored the village one our hotel bikes and stopped at the Church for a quick visit. Managed to coincide with Sunday Service which was the cherry on top. Loved the church and atmosphere - arrived a little late and no seats available so be sure to get their early if you want a full service.

    If I could, I would go there every day, just for the special feeling I left the shop with. Calm, serene zone filled with beautiful treasures. The staff treats visitors with respect and kindness. Love it.

    This lovely shopping area is now home to a really nice coffee shop with lovely snacks. The view is amazing and the service was very good. Excellent place for coffee and a bite if you are at the waterfront.

    Cute shop but totally over priced. Found similar decorations in st. Helena Bay for half the price. Definitely aimed at overseas tourists

    I love the nostalgia as well as some really interesting original pieces of art/jewellery. I found a stained glass window obviously from an old window....and took it home. Great priced items.

    The restaurant at Paternoster Hotel is centrally located at the main road of Paternoster. So if you don't mind hustle and bustle and cars driving past, you might feel comfortable on the veranda.
    The food was ok - nothing fancy but the hake and calamari were tasty.
    Service is average, the tables could have been wiped as they were not the cleanest. It's ok for a quick lunch stop but don't expect excellent cuisine.

    We did not expect much of this shop as we approached. Inside we were super surprised by their quality and variety.
    Highlight was the Deluxe coffee sold inside the shop, at a very reasonable price. We went back the next day for more coffee.
