Sanganeb Island to be turned into tourist resort

Published on : Friday, November 18, 2016

sanganeb-islandTaleb Rifai, the Secretary-General of the UNWTO said that Sudan’s Sanganeb Island in Red Sea is a global wealth which needs to be preserved and shaped into a tourist resort. He said that necessary measures need to be taken for turning the island into a tourist destination.

Sanganeb Island is Sudan’s first sea reserve and lies around 13 nautical miles from Port-Sudan harbor on the eastern coast of the Red Sea State in eastern Sudan. It is home to around 124 groups of coral reefs, 250 species of fish, like sharks, while few types of whales and dolphins occasionally visit the island. To quote Rifai, “I did not know that Sudan maintains a huge fortune like this island. I was surprised by the beauty of this island which enjoys all elements of maritime reserves.”

Sanganeb Island is called “the Bride of Maritime Tourism in the Red Sea”, since it is fully submerged in water, which makes it perfect for scuba diving and underwater photography for its pure blue water. Rifai has urged the Sudanese authorities to initiate infrastructure at the island and promote tourism there.
