WHAT TO DO
Things to see and do in-and-around Paternoster.
As far as lighthouses go, Cape Columbine is young. Built only in 1936, it was the last manned lighthouse constructed, and it rests on a windswept coastline within the Columbine Nature Reserve, just five kilometres outside of the fishing village of Paternoster.
The Five Bay Trail is a gentle trail that hugs the coastline between the bays of Paternoster and Jacobsbaai on the West Coast. It takes you on a timeless journey along the coast, tracing the history of the fishing culture on the West Coast.
You will find five scenic bays on this magnificent stretch of coastline, over a relaxed 2.5 day walking period. The trail is a gentle outdoor challenge by day, and offers delicious food and some memorable interactions with West Coast folk as the sun sets.

The fossil site of Langebaanweg is located in the West Coast Fossil Park, approximately 150 km north of Cape Town (a 1 1/2 hour drive), and is world-renowned for its exceptionally well-preserved fossil faunal remains, that date to the terminal Miocene/early Pliocene (circa 5.2 million years ago).
A national and international team of researchers are currently unraveling the fascinating and unique history of fossils from the West Coast Fossil Park and attempting to recreate the environment and climate of the west coast some 5 million years ago. At this time many animals that are now extinct, such as saber-toothed cats, short-necked giraffes, hunting hyenas and African bears roamed the west coast which then had a more subtropical climate with lush, riverine forests and open grasslands.
Enjoy the beauty of the West Coast on horseback with Drikus Horse Trails. Here you have the option of using your own horse or choosing from one of the many beautiful horses offered by Drikus Horse Trails, which is only 90 minutes away from Cape Town.
