  1. I like the photo and I’m intrigued by the name. Paternoster is the name of a continual loop elevator contraption in days gone by, but I suspect that’s not why this beach is so named.

    1. The origin of the name remains unknown. Many people believe that the name, which means ‘Our Father’ in Latin, refers to prayers said by Catholic Portuguese seamen when they became shipwrecked. It appears as St. Martins Paternoster on an old map of Pieter Mortier so the name may be derived from Paternoster Row in the City of London which is adjacent to St. Martins Court. Other people believe it refers to the beads that the Khoi tribe wore that were called Paternosters. Wikipedia
