Port Nolloth is a town and small domestic seaport in the Namaqualand region on the northwestern coast of South Africa, 89 miles (144 km) northwest of Springbok. It is the seat of the Richtersveld Local Municipality. The port was previously a transshipment point for copper from the Okiep mines, and diamonds from the Namaqua coast. Since the 1970s the principal seagoing activities have been fishing and small-vessel tourism. Today the town is a sleepy commercial hub with a number of holiday homes and a caravan park at the adjacent McDougalls Bay. It is also a gateway to the Richtersveld National Park, located 100 miles (160 km) to the north along the Orange River.
