The place can watch two oceans at the same time

As the borders of nations, the boundaries of the five oceans in the world are also clearly defined.

Historically, the world has four oceans: the Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Arctic Ocean. In 2000, the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) decided to create a new ocean, surrounding the continent with the smallest population on Earth, the Southern Ocean (Southern Ocean). This new ocean is the fourth largest of the five, wider than the Arctic Ocean.

The Indian Ocean and the Pacific meet in the South East Cape, the southernmost point on Tasmania Island, Australia. To reach this place, you must first drive about two hours from Hobart to a small settlement called Cockle Creek. This is the farthest southern point that anyone can drive to in Australia. From there, you walk to the southeastern tip, which takes about 2-3 hours.

The Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean meet at Cape Horn in the south of Chile. To get to this place, you must take a cruise ship departing from Ushuaia (Argentina) or Punta Arenas (Chile). The waters around the Cape Horn are famous for being difficult to move, with eddies, high winds, and unpredictable weather. Therefore, a trip here is not always smooth sailing to bring visitors to the port.

Normally, the ship will go around the Cape Horn area. If the weather is nice, you can set foot here and visit the lighthouse. The next destination is the Cape Horn monument, a memorial to all sailors who perished in shipwrecks around the legendary cape.

Another way to see where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet is to climb the Barú volcano in Panama. It is also the highest mountain in Panama, more than 3350 m. Barú is located on the isthmus of Panama with a width of about 120 km2, with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. On a clear day, you can also see both oceans from the summit.

The Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet at Agulhas cape, the southernmost point of Africa. Unlike Cape Horn, Agulhas is easily accessible and many travel companies often open tours to visit. The most popular place for travelers to depart coming here is from the city of Cape Town (South Africa).

However, not everyone knows that the Agulhas cape is where the two great seas meet. Many people have been pointed out by the local people to the Cape of Good Hope, or Point not far from each other to replace and sell souvenirs.
