This is a huge horseshoe shaped reef located north of Hurghada, with the open end of the horseshoe facing due south. Can be a challenging dive when the weather conditions are up. There is a sandy bottom at 12 metres that gently drops down to a coral garden.
Not a great abundance of fish and corals and some of the coral has seen better days. This is a favourite meeting point for dolphin of the area and it is not uncommon to have a school joining the dive.
