By The Seascope boat I saw the castle from out side It looks nice but I hope to see it from inside.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

The best thing about this Citadel, is it's stunning location! right in the middle of the red sea, on a small mountain. when you go around it by boat, you'll find it fascinating , and you'll think how did Salah el Din manage to build it there and even think about that place.
Definitely worth the visit, thought i have to be honest with you, nothing much to see inside, just the fortress itself.
The diving there though is breathtaking , as well as the snorkeling, so enjoy that one ;)

“Boat Trip only”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We only went on a boat trip to visit the reefs here, not the Island & castle itself. Sadly, the reefs look damaged and even dead in some areas from the multiple boat trips there every day - I think the area could do with less trips to give it time to recover.
