One of the featured snorkeling places in Sinai is this one, close to Dahab. The reef is not a wall, as everywhere else, but a sort of carpet, wide, rich, wonderful, with a deep hole in the middle. There, the dark blue and cold water create a vertiginous sensation. Indeed, a unique experience.

Unfortunately, the supporting touristy structures are poor and bad - even a toilet is something... well, they said that there were one, the ladies went there, and... gave up.

Address: Several areas to choose from.
Directions: Various areas along Namsan Bay in the Red Sea
Phone: Ask at your hotel
