Ras Abu Galum

Abu Galum is a stunning dive spot that lies in one of Sinai’s protected national park areas. Located in the far north of Dahab, this site can be accessed by camel or alternatively by boat. A sandy slope descends away from the shore with the reef wall starting on both sides going down to 30 meters.

On the left where the reef table swings wide into a steep wall dive with pinnacles and dramatic rock formations are trevallies and jacks, plus resident sea turtles.
