Bosaso (Somali: Boosaaso, Arabic: بوساسو‎) is a city in the northeastern Bari region (gobol) of Somalia. Located on the southern coast of the Gulf of Aden, it serves as the province’s commercial capital and is a major seaport within the autonomous Puntland state.

Formerly known as Bandar Qasim, Bosaso’s population is estimated at about 980,000 residents. It is the third largest city in the country after Mogadishu and Hargeisa.
