Jez’s Water Water Everywhere

Tietiesbaai – Paternoster

 

 The beach is located in the Cape Columbine Nature Reserve, which shares its border with the fishing village of Paternoster. This is the western-most beach on the whole of the Cape West Coast.

The area is great for camping because it is beautiful, peaceful, and close enough to the city for a weekend getaway. So, it is a hotspot for families and groups of friends that want to sit around the crackling fire, or feel the warm sunshine on their shoulders while they paddle in the waves.

 Tietiesbaai is also the famous home of the last South African-built and manually controlled lighthouse. The lighthouse stands at 80 metres above sea level and was built in 1936. Ships sailing from Europe are able to see the powerful beam.
