Port Nolloth is the perfect all-year holiday destination because in summer it is like an oasis in the desert, maintaining a moderate temperature of about 28 degree C due to the cool ocean breeze. And towards the end of winter, the semi-desert surroundings of Namaqualand come alive with fields of brilliantly coloured wildflowers. The majestic Richtersveld mountain-desert is also only a short two hour drive away, making Port Nolloth the perfect base for nature lovers. In town, you can visit the local museum (next to Bedrock Lodge) to learn more about the fascinating history of Port Nolloth and its people. From there, you can take a leisurely walk down the Grazia de Beer Beachfront, along the boardwalk towards a magnificent white, sandy beach. On your way you will pass many historic buildings, among them the oldest Roman Catholic Church (est. 1904) in the area.
In Room Facilities:
We provide all linen and towels as well as starter packs of tea, coffee and sugar. All rooms are heated.
Port Nolloth is as laidback as it sounds. Nothing much happens very fast here, and as a result, holiday makers are attracted to the town to soak up the worriless atmosphere, and the sun. McDougalls Bay is home to clean beaches and calm seas, if a little cold, that offer hours of swimming, walking, kayaking and boating time; and you can fish for snoek or yellowtail if you have a permit.
Port Nolloth and its neighbouring informal settlement, Sizamile make a good stop off if you are at all interested in the Namaqua Flower Route, or a visit to the Richtersveld National Park. Walking tours around Sizamile are on offer by local guides; the local museum is filled with history, and a trip inland to the little town of Lekkersing, just north of Port Nolloth, offers a "look in" to a community workgroup "rusoord" where local craft in the form of "velskoene", mats, huts, dresses and "riempie" chairs is available.
