Elphinstone Reef reviews
Amazing experience. We managed to visit during the hammer sharks season. We saw 4 beautiful hammer sharks, many Napoleon fish, and tuna. Be aware of the current it is a bit strong more »

One of the favourite places in a Red Sea. "Must dive" spot!
It's a pretty touristy reef but for a good reason! You can see many big fish - barracuda, napoleon, tuna - and also sharks! Even though there're so many people it's definitely worth diving there!
