The tranquil tourist hotspot of Port Nolloth is a town and seaport based in the wild and unspoiled north Western Cape of South Africa. The town falls under the Namaqualand district municipality and is approximately 89 miles away from the town of Springbok.
If you are looking for a holiday filled with seaside adventure, in a place that is bursting at the seams with history and natural wealth, then a trip to Port Nolloth would be an enjoyable experience for you. Historically, the port was a transshipment area for diamonds and copper from the Namaqua coast and Okiep mines respectively. In more recent years, the port has hosted a variety of sea based activities such as fishing and small-vessel tourism.
If you have a love for the ocean, you can expect to enjoy the view of fishing trawlers etched against elaborate sunset skies. Despite the industry in the area, the beaches in the town are clean and you can even expect to be accompanied by a few wild seals as you brave the Atlantic. The port also offers good line fishing as well as and abundance of crayfish to be caught. If you are not too much of a ‘sea harvester’, rest assured that local markets and factories allow for the buying of fresh fish and crayfish depending on the season. Another unique activity to be experienced in Port Nolloth is visiting an Oyster Farm. If you have the acquired taste for oysters, this trip will be not only surreal but good for your budget as well!
