really an aquarium

Here you can make quiet dives with almost no currents and loads of fish. Always love to come here. both the east and west side are okay and its even possible to drift to the reef.

Yes it is an aquarium : colorful, a lot of fishes, nice coral garden. Perfect place for snorkeling, rehab dive or just to discover Red Sea Reef! But it's not a secret spot so you might not be alone diving.
