Angarosh & Abington Reef

Both reefs are situated about 80 nautical miles to the north of Port Sudan. They belong to a small chain of reefs way off from the coast, which rise from over 500 m from deep sea like needles. Both reefs are triangular in shape with plateaus of different sizes at each corner. The sides are very steep.

The unmanned Abington lighthouse can be seen from a great distance; while Angarosh is visible as a small sand island rising a few metres above sea level. The entire spectrum of reef life can be seen at both reefs. The exposed situation of the reefs offers good opportunities to watch pelagic predators. Strong currents are not uncommon here due to the exposed location. It also provides a feeding area for a great number of hard and soft corals.
