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. Shark Reef, Yolanda Reef, and Satellite Reef make up the 3 pinnacles here. On Yolanda Reef you can find toilets and a mast laying around from the sunken Yolanda wreck.

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.
