Port Sudan is a port city on the east coast of Sudan. It’s the capital of Sudan’s Red Sea State, named for the body of water that it borders. This trading hub is now a growing destination for fans of relaxation and leisure. The hot, dry climate lasts year-long, although winter months tend to be cooler on average.

The nearby Nubian Desert hosts ruins of the ancient civilization of Nubia, based out of what is now Northern Sudan. The renowned Pyramids of Meroë can be found on the road to Khartoum. Once you’ve had some dry desert fun, get wet with the snorkelling and diving options available in this seaside town. Keep cool with ice cream or iced tea from one of the many stands that dot the boardwalk. Traveling back to your accommodations couldn’t be easier thanks to the plentiful rickshaws waiting to take you home at a very affordable price.
