Ships seeking safe haven in South Africa

The South African coastline is susceptible to strong winds and high swells that could affect ships transiting along the coastline especially around Cape of Good Hope.

For ships transiting Cape of Good Hope either in the East to West or West to East direction, Algoa Bay on the Indian Ocean side (Eastern Seaboard of South Africa) and St.Helena Bay on the Atlantic Ocean (Western Seaboard of South Africa) provides a safe haven against the inclement weather conditions.
