Abu Talha

15min drive north. Shallowly sloping coral garden with pinnacles, which, when dived north, turns into a sandy slope with table corals. In the shallow area especially beautiful due to massive hard coral blocks.Entrance over the reef top, therefore only diveable at high tide and little wind.

At the entry chance for small barracudas. Sometimes turtles, Napoleons and eagle rays passing by. At the table corals shoals of red tooth trigger fish.
