Ras Disha is approx.  20 minutes boat journey from Makadi Bay. The reef is the northern part of a bay where you also find Abu Hashish and Makadi Bay. The dive site goes from a plateau at 6-13 m, limited by coral pinnacles in the south and turns into a drop off toward the north at 20-40 m. The current is predominantly going from the north, and the site is protected against stormy sea. You can dive Ras Disha in the inside, outside and as a drift dive.

At the pinnacles you'll find many glass fish and their hunters, e.g. scorpion fish, stonefish, trevally, lionfish and grouper. Bluespot stingray, Octopus, threatfin bream, turtle and others also. Outside you can find  Tuna, Barracuda and if you're lucky a reef shark.
