Shabha

Under 1h from El Gouna to the south you can find the beautiful reef block of Shabha. The top of the reef starts just under the water’s surface and extends all the way to the sandy bottom just 14m deep, making this a shallow dive. To circle the entire reef will take you about 1h. On the east side there are also some pinnacles.

The reef is full of antias, glass fish, and other reef fishes. Take a camera with you, because the stone fish, scorpion fish, and lion fish are laying all over. Its like diving in an aquarium.
