Eritrea - April 9th, 2009

An intense sun glint highlights the shores of the Red Sea, particularly the coasts of Saudi Arabia (top right), Eritrea (bottom right) and Sudan (upper left).

The Dahlak Archipelago can be seen off the coast of Eritrea towards the lower right. It is an island group near Massawa which consists of two large and 124 small islands. The islands are a home for diverse marine life and sea-birds.

Only four of the islands are permanently inhabited, of which Dahlak Kebir is the largest and most populated. Other islands of this archipelago include Dhuladhiya, Dissei, Dohul, Erwa, Harat, Hermil, Isra-Tu, Nahaleg (Nahleg), Norah and Shumma.
