Dive Site



Darraka is a very long island with a huge plateau in the northeast.


The long island in the deep south of the Suakin archipelago has a plateau with a fantastic coral garden on the north side. The plateau continues to drop off behind the hillside to 35m to 40m before sinking into "infinity". Large red mouth groupers seek refuge in the garden which is punctuated with small caves. Swarms of black spotted sweetlips, bicolor chromis and other damselfishes captivate the view here over the "Garden of Eden".


  • Huge whip corals that stand like candles on a cake
  • In the "blue" you can also see different shark species
