It's a nice place for snorkeling. The water is wonderful. But if u want a better snorkeling experience u should go to blue hole at Dahab.

Amazing place. It was here in September 2015. Very impressive. Castle Rural location at sea. Surrounded on all sides by a red sea. Very thick walls.

this place is very special that you can feel that strong culture richness once you step in. The citadel architecture and location just in the middle of water is nothing but a pure charm. you can't go to Taba without visiting this place.

The castle itself is amazing and looks like recently built. The view from their is so nice. It's not recommended for the old people because of the long stairs. If more explain boards are added this place will be excellent.
