The first lighthouse that is seen by ships en-route from Europe to South Africa is on the coast of a picturesque and quaint fishing village called Paternoster (Latin Pater Noster – Our father.)   Legend has it that the name was derived from the prayers said by Catholic Portuguese seamen when shipwrecked.

It is approximately 140km north of Cape Town, on the West Coast.  The waters of the bay are frequently visited by Whales and Dolphins.  And the 8Km of white sandy beaches of this renowned fishing village is unquestionably a place to relax and to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
