Saldanha Bay is a natural harbour on the south-west coast of South Africa,. Its location makes it a paradise for watersports. Its local economy is strongly dependent on fishing and the harbour. It is located 105km west of Cape Town. On the chart can be seen three small islands, namely Jutten Island, Schaapen Island and Meeu Island. On the south side of the bay is a peninsula which is an outcrop of the West Coast National Park.

Latitude Kinsale pioneered the fibre optic technology used in these light charts. They are created using a complex system of fibre optic cables and a microprocessor whereby each lighthouse and navigation buoy is programmed to flash in its prescribed colour and sequence. They are a very popular gift item for anyone who has a particular interest in lighthouses or indeed an affinity with the sea.
