The Guardian’s travel section featured Eritrea’s Dahlak Islands under the title “Islands and archipelagos: readers’ travel tips”.
The Dahlak Archipelago is an island group located in the Red Sea near Massawa, the seaport gateway to Eritrea. It consists of two large and 124 small islands scattered over a vast area of the Red Sea.
The virtually unheard and unspoiled archipelago is a must visit if travel budgets can cope. Boat trips require a permit, and the packages are nothing for low budget.
The Red Sea, or what is sometimes called the Erythraean Sea, is a seawater inlet of the Indian Ocean, lying between Africa and Asia.
Philip Kerry, a Guardian reader, provided his travel tip to the UK newspaper saying,
“Set in the Red Sea, this Eritrean Archipelago is about as hard to get to as they come. But the effort is more than rewarded by these spectacular, deserted islands.
Snorkelling beckons by day, phosphorescence on the water abounds by night and aside from the four inhabited islands, you’ll have them all to yourself.”
