This dive site sits in the bay of Mersa Bareika and is scattered with colorful coral heads that stretch all around the area and flourish with high and low tide, giving a diverse array of marine life.

Head north along the wall amongst big overhangs and dark gullies, the wall is swathed in red sea fans. You will also see gorgonians and the odd sprig of black coral.
