Tourism in Port Sudan

Sudan is not Africa’s most popular tourist destination. But for divers, Port Sudan is a must-do.

The coral reefs near Port Sudan are in excellent health, and grey and white tip reef sharks are abundant. Barracuda are also common, and divers sometimes see tuna or trevally. At the surface, marine life thrives, and there are many reef fish, turtles, and dolphins, not to mention the warm blue waters. Below, the shipwrecks of the Umbria and the Blue Belt are fascinating, and there is an underwater habitat at Sha’ab Rumi built by Jacques Cousteau.
