The mainland, although not very large, extends along the coast, and there are several islands as well.

It's still amazing, given that the distance between the northernmost and southernmost points of the Eritrean coast is almost 200 km shorter than the distance between Suez and the southernmost point of the Egyptian Red Sea coast, which doesn't even include the Sinai peninsula and the Mediterranean coast. Eritrea must have a seriously jagged coastline and a lot of islands.

Interestingly, according to the other source on Wikipedia (World Resources Institute) Egypt has almost 5900 km of coastline while Eritrea is 2500 km behind.

Eritrea has a fairly jagged coastline, especially when compared to other African nations like Somalia or Mozambique. This is why nations like Greece and Croatia have such long coastlines.

Madagascar may be classified as an African nation but it has nothing to do with the continent of Africa. You owe the test takers a word of explanation.

Egypt's might look a lot longer, but Eritrea's coastline is more wiggly, put simply.
