Sanganeb reef on Google Maps.
Built in 1906 by the British to signal the entrance to the canal leading to Port Sudan, at the time the new port of Sudan after the access to Suakin Bay (just south) was restricted due to coral growth, the Sanganeb lighthouse is still today one of the most important lighthouses for navigation in the Red Sea. Initially it was only a steel tower then, given the commercial development of the British colony, in 1955 the steel tower was replaced by the conical tower over 50 m high and about 10 m wide at the base. Two long piers connect the lighthouse with the outside of the reef to the south and with the wide lagoon to the north, allowing access to the lighthouse in any sea conditions to supply water, fuel for the generator and food to the military garrison living in the structure. Climbing the 268 steps you reach the balcony of the lantern from which you can observe the spectacular panorama of the entire coral platform over 3 km long. The Sanganeb lighthouse is a must for cruise passengers who sail and dive along the unspoiled Sudanese reefs.
