    Location

    About 90 minutes south from Hurghada, on the coast, is a wide bay with an island at its centre ‘Abu Hashish’. It is defined to the north by a headland called ‘Ras Disha’. There is a plateau of shallow sand and past the beacon, to the north is a drop-off. Three ergs lie to the south. They are probably the nicest diving.

    Sea Conditions

    The dive site is well sheltered from waves and current which come predominantly from the north.

    Dive Plan

    Forget the main reef. It is largely dead. The best route to take is around the ergs. They rise up from a sandy seabed at 10-12m. The most northerly has a large cavern thick with Glassfish.

    Marine Life

    On the ergs, the usual hunters of Glassfish – Jacks, Lionfish and Redmouth Groupers. This place also has the richest sand-dwelling fauna around – Crocodilefish, Flatfish, Stonefish, Spiny Devilfish, Blue Spotted Rays and Seamoths come as standard. On the wall to the north, a Grey Reef Shark is rumoured to hang out, and on the sandy plateau and between the ergs schools of juvenile Barracuda.
