Dive Site: Salah's Place

Location: Dahab, 2836.895N; 3433.569E (90 min camel ride from the Blue Hole)

Description: Shore dive / coral garden

Depth: 1 - 30 metres (3 - 100 feet)

Visibility: 30 metres (100 feet)

Rating: ****

The dive starts in a small sandy lagoon divided from the plateau by a saddle of stunning corals. Outside the reef table directly in front of the lagoon is a beautiful pinnacle covered in soft and hard corals. This is often surrounded by glassfish and silver sides who are hunted in flashes of silver by rainbow runnerfish and trevallies. A shallow plateau descends dramatically into a wall with pinnacles of soft corals and black coral. On a longer dive it is possible to see schools of batfish on the wall. If dived as a shallow dive coral gardens weave a path between 3 and 10m.
