Moucha Island is a small coral island off the coast of Djibouti. It is located at the center of the Gulf of Tadjoura.


Less than 3 km long, Moucha Island's mainland is surrounded by the smaller Maskali Island, a few islets and a coral reef. All of these islands, sometimes collectively referred to as Moucha Islands, are well-known diving sites.

Musha, the main city on the island, is served by the Moucha Airport.[1]
