Tietiesbaai (Cape Columbine Nature Reserve)
Cape Columbine Nature Reserve is on the West Coast near the fishing village, Paternoster. It is the furthest westerly destination in the Western Cape. The reserve covers an area of 263ha along the rocky stretch of coastline. This area was declared a nature reserve in December 1973.
This reserve boasts the last manually controlled lighthouse to be built in South Africa. It is usually the first South African lighthouse to be seen by ships coming from Europe. The lighthouse was built in 1936 on Castle Rock. The light stands at a height of 80m above sea level and casts a beam, which is visible for about 50km.
