Port Overview


The Port of Djibouti has excellent nautical condition and benefits from a natural protection by coral reef that plays a role of a breakwater structure. The benches of coral reef which are close to the port absorb the agitation of the waves and offer deep area and quiet water. The anchorage offers depths between 10 to 40 meters and are well sheltered by the coral reef. They also manage the dangerous goods & cargo and prevent pollution. The shipping agent has to send the manisfet 48 hours before the ship call.
