In my opinion one of the best Red Sea dives. Ex Marsa Alam this reef is under quite a lot of water so larger fish as well as small reef fish gather here. At the edge of the reef you can look over the edge and see hammerheads off the wall. Marsa Alam is predominantly a dive centre, not much else to do and this isn’t really a good spot for beginners.
