It once had a small peninsula on its eastern side, with its isthmus in the south and a well established fishing village named Tigres. The ocean broke through the isthmus of the peninsula in 1962 and the water line was severed. Tigres became an island overnight, Tigres Island, the largest island of Angola.
Currently most of the area of the former bay has become a strait between the island and the mainland. Of the oeriginal bay only a small inlet open to the north —the Saco dos Tigres— remains at the southern end.
