Bishia (Arabic: نشيا‎) is a small locality in western Eritrea.


It is the end of the Eritrean Railway line from Asmara, though the line did briefly extend through to Sudan. However the railway no longer extends here, having been damaged during the Eritrean-Ethiopian War. The railway has been rehabilitated between the Red Sea and Asmara but has not been rebuilt up to Bishia.
