“Crowded beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2014

We had to pay £2.50 to get on the beach and were packed in like sardines next to unhappy Russians many of the were elderly and did leave at 1pm for lunch thank goodness. The snorkeling is not that good here either. Be warned there are many steps down there is a bar on the way down and the fresh mango juice is to die for. However do not expect to see the sunset as advertised the beach and bar above are at the wrong angle.

This is a perfect opportunity to see the beauty of the coral and fish living in perfect harmony. A must dive venue.

“Great Diving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

If you're in Sharm El Sheikh and you dive, you have to dive here. The coral life is booming and the variety of fish was incredible. We even saw a white tip shark for our very first dive!! The octopus sighting and lion fish were incredible too.
