About The Gulf Of Guinea (World Atlas)

The Gulf of Guinea is one of the most dangerous gulfs in the world because of the widespread piracy that has affected a number of countries in West Africa and the larger international community.

It is the northeasternmost portion of the tropical Atlantic Ocean located off the western coast of Africa, extending from Cape Palmas in Liberia to Cape Lopez in Gabon.

Several rivers drain into the Gulf of Guinea including the Niger River and the Volta River. The Gulf’s coastline includes the Bight of Bonny and Bight of Benin and forms the western edge of the African tectonic plate.

The coastline is also similar to the continental margin of South America, constituting a clear confirmation of the theory of continental drift.
