    Default Paternoster to Britannia Bay

    Hi,

    I'm heading to Britannia Bay soon, and I see that there is a road between Paternoster and Britannia Bay that runs along the coast. Does anyone have knowledge on whether this is accessible to the general public and whether it can indeed be followed all the way through (so no gates etc)?

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    There is a road and its open to the public but if you don't have a 4x4 you will probably not get through.
    There is one little section where you climb or descend the dune which is a bit tricky.
    If you going from Britannia to Paternoster you will descend the dune which is not so bad but the other direction will be much more difficult.
    Other than that there is some soft sand but nothing to but worried about.
    There is a gate on the Britannia side but its unlocked.

    Did you do the route?
    I would like to do the same as we always take the dirtroad just outide Paternoster to St Helena.
    Any advice?

    I've driven that route a couple of times, at least once in each direction. What else would you like to know?

    Hi, there seems to be various paths you can take, one from the Paternoster side led me up what appeared to be someones drive way. At this point I stopped & turned back as I didn't want to be an unividted guest for Sunday lunch. Google maps however shows that the road continues through?

    We also came upon the driveway, just go straight through dead slow, smile and wave

    The road passes between a couple of houses. They're rental accommodation, sometimes empty, sometimes not. Drive slow, smile and wave.
