Shark & Yolanda Reef

This is the most famous dive site around Sharm el Sheikh and is suitable for every level of diver as there are many possibilities to dive on these reefs.

Outside the reefs you can find big schools of batfish, barracudas, snappers, jacks, and much more. Inside the reef you can find cleaning stations and many rays and turtles.
