This off-shore dive in the Strait of Gubal can be accessed by boat from Sharm El-Sheikh. It's a shallow, circular reef that tapers to a total depth of 80 ft, and best known for its brilliant and soft corals. The diving (the best of which is on the reef's eastern side) can be heavily dependent on conditions. On a calm day, divers are rewarded with large schools of fish, many of them pelagics, and snorkelers can check out the nearby wreck of the Sarah H, which rests in the nearby shallows.
