Visit Ma’ākel

The Ma'akel region of Eritrea is a coastal area located in the north of the country. Characterized by its sandy beaches, lush jungles and rolling hills, this region has been a popular destination for both local and international tourists for many years. One of the main attractions is Dahlak Archipelago which consists of more than 200 small islands that are known for their pristine coral reefs and crystal clear waters.

In addition to its natural beauty, Ma'akel also boasts an array of fascinating historical sites. One such example is Alitena Ruins which dates back to the 4th century BC when it was part of an ancient kingdom known as Adulis. The ruins are located within Zula National Park which covers more than 20 square kilometers and contains numerous other archaeological sites from various periods in history.

Finally, no visit to Ma'akel would be complete without exploring Massawa Old Town - a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was once one of Africa's most important ports during the Ottoman era. Here visitors can wander through narrow alleyways lined with colorful buildings as well as explore grand palaces like Beit al Baraka - famous for its intricate Islamic architecture from over 600 years ago!
