Gamul Soraya

About 30 minutes from the coast by boat. The main reef extends to 14m deep. The south side goes to 20m. There is little current but due to its size, it can be a bit windy and is not always approachable when winds are strong.

The Red Sea at its finest. All types of colorful fish and many camouflage artists, scorpionfish, stonefish, octopus, and crocodile fish. Barracudas are not rare here.
