Oceans around South Africa

South Africa has a coastline of some 3 000 km, Namibia 1 572 km and Mozambique 2 470km. This part of the African continent is located close to three Oceans, namely the South Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Southern Ocean. The southern tip of the African continent is exposed to the weather storms generated in the Southern Ocean, and the waves erode beaches and impact on shipping (using the Cape Route) and ports.
