Thio is an attractive Afar village. Many colored huts of wood and bamboo line the
shore, draped with fishing nets. It is the biggest fishing village between
Massawa and Assab, and if you have an urge to fish from a dhow this is
probably the easiest place to organize it.
To get to Thio, you have to pass through a barren area
of the Eritrea where the Saho people live.
