Port St. Johns is a small coastal town in the Eastern Cape Provice of South Africa. It is about 70 kilometres away from Mthatha.

The town is located on what is known as the "Wild Coast" and is the most popular tourist destination in the area. Tourists enjoy the scenic beauty of the area, the beaches nearby and the good fishing spots.

Port St. Johns is on the southern bank of the Umzimvubu River which was as a port for many years. It closed down when the river silted up in the 1940's.

The town is serviced by an unusual airstrip. The runway is located on top of Mount Thesiger.
