|Shaab Quais literally translated means "Good Reef". That is in the case of this fantastic site not an understatement. This reef boasts some of the most spectacular soft coral growth in the Red Sea. The site consists of two small coral pinnacles which drop from 4m below the surface on the plateau in approx. 20m. These pinnacles are home to literally millions of anthias which give thses coral structures an orange glow. On the eastern plateau you will find a breathtaking carpet of soft corals and clusters of gorgonian fans. Within this carpet you will find huge table corals standing silently like sentries, offering shelter to large groupers and giant morays. The drop-off stretches itself out in a depth of 24-28m and then goes down the wall to 80+m. Here you will see patrolling napoleons, tuna, barakuda, schools of unicorn surgeon fish, turtles, reef sharks and occasionally hammerheads. This reef can only be dived under dead calm weather conditions and even then the current is renowned to be furious.
