Darraka

Overview

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

Description

The elongated 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 behind the hilly landscape to 35m to 40m, before sinking into "infinity". Large redmouth groupers take refuge in the garden with small caves. Shoals of black polka dot sweet lips, two-color chromis and other damselfish captivate the view over the “Garden of Eden”.

Hotspots

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