Underwater attractions

Abu Dabab is a very famous dive site. Mainly because there is a chance to meet Dugong. Also here you will find small and large turtles. You can meet them even a dozen or so. As in most of the coves and beaches near the hotel, the bottom drops here gently at the beginning. Beautiful views start relatively quickly. There are many scenarios to get to know this place. Interestingly, most of the underwater life you will see with a mask. The average depth is 20 m. There is a large, diverse and lively reef on the site. The wealth of marine life can also be met with increasing depth. There is a beautiful coral garden visited by colorful fish. The cave system and the small shipwreck make the place all the more interesting. During the dive you can find turtles, dugongs, napoleon fish and even sharks. Most of the local diving centers come to this beach.
