Abu Kafan

Abu Kafan is a long, narrow reef with a large plateau running north to south. Roughly translated, Abu Karan means “father of the deep.“ This steep wall drops vertically to well over the 100 meters deep.

Lots of soft coral, due to the depth and often strong currents, it offers a great chance for big fish.
