“Great for snorklers and new divers...”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

It is a good spot for snorkling and diving. If you haven't been diving a lot in the red sea, then you'll just love it. Probably one of the top spots from shore. If you want better, you'll have to go somewhere by boat.
If you're lucky, you'll see big stuff in the water. I saw an Eagle ray when I was there.

“Snorkeling Bliss”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Well if your an avid snorkeler you`ll love this place, so many different species of really colorful fish that you will want to come back again as the water visibility is fantastic as well as the temperature which usually hovers around the 26*c mark so your toes won`t get cold either, so go there & enjoy.
