Things To Do In And Around Paternoster
Paternoster is all about doing a whole lot of nothing. Long walks on the beach, reading, eating, sleeping, talking…and then doing it all over again. Ideal for winding down after a long flight…before taking a long flight back home…or just escaping the hustle and bustle of city life.
