Explore the Cape West Coast
Welcome to the tranquil West Coast with its wide, open spaces, charming fishing villages, unspoilt beaches and abundant animal and marine life. From water sports and whale watching to enchanting spring flowers, hiking among the fynbos, mountain biking, birding and fresh seafood, this beguiling year-round destination has it all.
Congratulations Wolfgat for winning best Off-Map Destination!
South Africa wins big as Wolfgat in Paternoster – tucked away in a 130-year-old ocean-side cottage on the historic Wolfgat cave, with a menu specialising in local seafood and plants foraged from the Western Cape – is crowned ‘Restaurant of the Year’ as well as ‘Off-Map Destination’
Paris – If mother nature erected a sign saying ‘build restaurant here’, it would surely point to Wolfgat. Chosen from all the inspected big plates, their inaugural Restaurant of the Year is a small, remote haven of purity and good taste in every sense.
