About 150m from Shaab Sabrina; Erg Sabrina is a small isolated reef in the middle of the Giftun Strait. It sits on a sandy seabed between 10 and 12m. To the east and west are gardens of Fire Coral and to the north there is a smaller erg, home to Glassfish and great for photography.
Perfectly calm but often a steaming current.
There’s only one dive plan for a small erg like this. Go round it. Don’t waste time on the south side which is dull, but make sure you get to the small northern erg. On the west side is a white sand patch, home to a large school of Goatfish.
Turtles, big Puffers, Goatfish schools, Arabian Angelfish, Emperor Angelfish, Nudibranchs, Lobster and a lot of small reef fish.
