List of Major Gulfs of the World

List of Major Gulfs of the World:-

What is Gulf?
A gulf is a body of water that is connected to a sea or ocean. There will be land partially surrounding the water, but it is larger than a bay.

What is the difference between Gulf and Bay?
Both have the same characteristics. In technical terms, both a gulf and a bay are the same things, and the only difference that is pointed out is in the size. A gulf is much larger than a bay. Gulfs are large bodies of water that have only a narrow entrance along a strait. A bay is also a large body of water that has a wider opening than a gulf.
Though it has been said that a bay is smaller than a gulf, there are many exceptions. The Bay of Bengal, about the size of the Arabian Sea, is much larger than the Gulf of Mexico.
