The smallest of the four famous Straits of Tiran reefs in Egypt, but one of most interesting and richest. A common way to dive it is to drift along the eastern or western reef walls, both of which are covered with soft and hard corals. Currents are usually strong and may change during the dive. This site is known for its abundance of marine life, corals in good condition and its spectacular Canyon on the eastern side, which is quite deep, starting at 35m and progressing deeper.
