“nice place to dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

not the best place to dive near hurghada, but you can go there and have nothing to loose, average place for red sea. i recomend this only for a dive, not a full day dive, combined with some other dive site near this.

“Bliss but only on a calm day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Last time I was here HEPCA were putting in a mooring so the experience wasn't a peaceful one !
This time although the trip was choppy the dive itself was worth the trip, free swimming Morays, Blue-Spotted Rays aplenty, watch out for the Crown of Thorn Starfish, a few years ago they were devastating this reef, now its coming back to its former glory through monitoring of their numbers. Very exposed so not a regular, dependant on conditions, Dive guides on their day off opt for this site, as isolated there is the chance of seeing some big stuff out in the blue.
