Arguably the best dive site in the Red Sea. About 400 metres long and 30 metres wide with a north/south axis. On both Northern and Southern tips, you find a plateau sloping from 20 metres to more than 30 metres. All sides of the reef provide excellent diving and there are several regular drop-off points which can be used depending upon the prevailing weather.

The reef is home to nearly all the Red Sea fauna and flora and offers the best chances for encounters with Manta Rays and Shark; Hammerheads in summer and Oceanic White Tips all year round. Diving at this site is subject to weather conditions.
