Tietiesbaai nature reserve
The Tietiesbaai Nature Reserve is simply stunning. It’s a short 3km drive from Paternoster. You can camp there or just go for a braai (barbeque) right on the beach with the waves breaking just a few meters in front of you.
Fishing on the rocks
Go for a braai right on the beach. Take out the old rusty fishing rod and catch lunch right from the rocks. Each stand has a fixed braai, waterpoints and there’s even clean ablution buildings featuring bathroom and shower facilities.
Cape Columbine lighthouse
Cape Columbine is well known for its lighthouse, the last manned lighthouse built on the South African coast. The Cape Columbine Lighthouse was commissioned on October 1, 1936. Both the headland and lighthouse derive their name from the barque Columbine, that was wrecked 1.5 km North of the lighthouse on March 31, 1829.
