Geography and History

Port Nolloth is a town and domestic seaport in the Namaqualand region on the Diamond coast of the Northern Cape province in South Africa.  Port Nolloth is situated 143km northwest of Springbok.

Port Nolloth was established as a small-vessel harbour and railway junction in 1854 for the copper-mining industry, Port Nolloth’s narrow, shallow entrance makes it unsuitable for ore carriers.  It is, instead, a centre for the small-scale diamond recovery and crayfishing industries, and the only resort on the Diamond Coast. 

 

Activities

Port Nolloth is a scenic town with fishing trawlers in the bay, clean beaches and playful seals to enjoy.  

Port Nolloth offers good line-fishing and fresh crayfish aplenty. Fish and crayfish can be bought from the factory in season.

Experience a bit of the Nama culture at Lekkersing, inland, north of Port Nolloth.
