“Superb for divers and snorklers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

A small bay that was "wild" a few years ago, now there is a hotel (Oriental Bay) nearby. The entrance to the sea is on the left side of the bay on sandy botton, there is a passage between the reef parts. The variety of fishes is enormous (i saw the red sea walkfish there for the first time, quite rare creature), there are turtles living there, sometimes dolphins or rays come. On the southern reef there are halls and caves and holes - if you are a diver, it is a must. In case of strong wind the visibility at the shallow may be fair as there is a lot of sand in the water then. I have dived there several times now and there is always someting new to see.
The visitors from ouside (i.e. not being the guests of Oriental Bay Hotel) are charged the entrance fee of 5 USD (if you come with the diving centre, it sould be included already in the price).
