Nice site a few hundred meters north of Canyon and the Fish Bowl. Often done as a dive between Rick's and Canyon.

Easy entry from shore. The shore is rocky but the beach area is sandy making this a relatively easy walk compared to other sites in Dahab.

What You Can See

Sloping bottom with corals and white sandy bottom. Lots of reef fishes. Highlights that can be seen here include Sole, Octopus, Eagle Ray, and much more. Nice corals with small pinnacles. Easy to have a great dive in less than 20m/65ft of depth making this a nice site for photographers.


Be careful with the overhead areas around Canyon and Fish Bowl (which is closed to divers now because of damage from bubbles).
