Port Nolloth

144km northwest of springbok

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 holiday resort on the Diamond Coast. Dredgers and fishing trawlers etched against spectacular sunsets, clean beaches, calm seas and the occasional antics of seals are made the more pleasant by good line-fishing and fresh crayfish aplenty. Good examples of Nama culture can be seen at Lekkersing, inland, north of Port Nolloth.
