The name Paternoster is said to have reflected the prayers of sailors who ran into trouble on the rocky shores. It could also have reference to a fisherman’s knot originating from Scotland. New developments have been stimulated by the increase in visitors, the latest development being the establishment of a market where local fishermen can sell their catch. Access to the Columbine Nature Reserve and the lighthouse which now provides accommodation is through this village. Kayaking and diving are available.
