Perfectly Paternoster

If, like us, you are a huge fan of South Africa, then you have probably already ticked Kruger Park, Sabi Sands, the Garden Route, Cape Town, and a whole host of inland treasures off your bucket list… but if you haven’t ventured up the west coast yet – you are in for a treat!

During our two-year placement in Cape Town we heard much about the windswept west coast, but never seemed to find the time to go there, so on our recent trip to South Africa we made sure our first two days were spent in one of the country’s oldest fishing villages – the quaint seaside retreat of Paternoster.

When it comes to describing Paternoster, idyllic, peaceful and romantic are just some of the words that spring to mind, and by treating ourselves to two nights at the exquisite Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel, we were able to relax and unwind in this beachside haven before heading to the chaos one only finds in Cape Town.

If walking on the beach, collecting shells, eating seafood, and drinking fine South African wines as the sun goes down sounds like your dream holiday, add a trip to Paternoster in your next itinerary, and enjoy a little bit of luxury at the Strandloper Ocean…

    Recently read ‘The Last Train to Zona Verde’ by Paul Theroux. His Africa is different from yours, stark and desperate
