Abu Soma Garden

This dive site is shallow to over 30m with little current, therefore, it is suitable for beginner divers. Because the coral garden is shallow, it is also a very nice place for snorkeling.

There are many schools of fish to see here. Morays and octopuses like to hide in the coral garden. Sometimes eagle rays are also seen.
