Paternoster - A Day at Tietiesbaai

Tietiesbaai Credits:

Tietiesbaai is situated in the Cape Columbine Nature Reserve at Paternoster on the West Coast. Tietiesbaai is a sheltered beach in a cove flanked by incredibly beautiful rocks which reduce the waves out at sea to mere ripples in the little bay.

Tietiesbaai is an ideal spot for campers, fisherfolk and families wanting to spend a day out in the sunshine away from the commercialness of city beaches. Facilities are fairly spartan and you need to take your own barbeque equipment with you. 

Photographers delight in the dramatic images of rock and sea that they capture at this unique and most westerly location on the West Coast.

Kayakers use the safe Tietiesbaai to launch their craft.

You can spend time on the rocks, build sand castles near the waters edge, walk in the pristine Cape fynbos and even climb to the top of Cape Columbine lighthouse. For more images of Tietiesbaai see our album on Facebook


Tieties Baai is in Cape Columbine Nature Reserve which is open from 07:00 to 19:00. Day visitors are restricted to 150 per day. Campers need to book in advance through Saldanha Bay Municipality.


Entrance fee to the reserve is R11 per adult (2010) Children, pensioners and group tours are entitled to discounts.
