Cape Guardafui and Cape Hafun, Somalia
Cape Guardafui, in Somalia, is the headland that forms the geographical apex of what is commonly known as the Horn of Africa.
The Horn of Africa (sometimes called the Somali Peninsula) is a peninsula in East Africa that juts out for hundreds of kilometers into the Arabian Sea, and lies along the southern side of the Gulf of Aden.
It denotes the region containing the countries of Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Somalia, although the area visible here is exclusively part of Somalia.
South of Cape Guardafui is a 40 km long low-lying peninsula in the Bari region of northern Somalia. The promontory juts out into the Indian Ocean, where it is known as Cape Hafun and is the easternmost point on the African continent.
The promontory is joined to the mainland at the town of Foar by a sand spit 20 km long, 1-3 km in width and roughly 5 m above sea level.
