Offers wreck diving on two sunken boats on the northern tip and excellent wall diving along the southern side of the reef with strong currents promoting the growth of a spectacular forest of soft corals. Frequent sightings of big pelagics and an astonishing variety of marine life.

Little Brother
The smaller island next door has a superb fan coral forest and plenty of caves, ovrhangs, black coral, and a great deal of pelagics including sharks, tuna, barakuda, turtles and schools of reef fish.

2. Queseir El Qadim

3. Erg El Esel
