Ras Siyyan, Djibouti 

Ras Siyyan or Ras Siyan is a peninsula in the Obock Region of Djibouti, on the Bab-el-Mandeb strait between the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, about 20 km southwest of Perim Island.

The peninsula consists of a reddish volcanic hill about 1.2 by 0.5 km and 138 m high, connected towards to the mainland by a low sandy strip that stretches south by about 5 km while widening from 500 to 800 m. The Ras Siyyan volcano is currently inactive but young, having erupted through a 21,000-year-old coral reef formation.
