“central”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

Central location to Naama bay and old town Sharm, less noisy
at night and handy for T2 bar and retaurant and close to IL Mercato centre, for good shops (no hassle) and restaurants. Also there is a dolphinarium and several small (cheaper ) shops
for water etc

“Nice diving and snorkeling spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

The reef becomes more and more rotten as thousands of tourists snorkel there every day and - unfortunately - touch the corals and/or steep the reef. Still there is plenty to see and the variety of fishes and other sea creatures is still imressive, the visibility is also usually very good and the place is suitable for diving and snorkeling all the year round as it is well protected against the wind and there are no big waves as in the open coast at Nabq. Several hotels are located there and they are pretty good for vacation.

“Amazing Dive Site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

This is one of the best places to dive with so much colour and fish....it was amazing. We had a drift dive along this reef with King Snefro liveabords, who are fabulous.

I can not wait to go back.

Sadly to many people walk all over the coral!! But for diving, definitely worth a dive here. :)

“They can't all be Jackson Reef!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

Famous as the place they filmed the C&G advert with the little boy diving into the temple for pearls, a perfectly good dive but not exceptional given other choices such as Jackson or Shark/ Yolanda. Consider it the filler without which your meal might be too rich! :-)

Great hard and soft corals with huge variety of fish. Fantastic clarity, too. It isn't a difficult dive and there's a huge amount to see. Enjoy!
