Shaab Abu Nuhas

South of Sharm El Sheikh after Ras Mohamed, we find Shaab Mahmoud. The southern part of the reef houses the Dunraven wreck. It rests on the sandy bottom and beautiful hard and soft corals have settled there. The reef itself is nice and rich with corals and different fish species.
Ras Mohamed national park

The British cargo ship was attacked by a German bomber in 1941. The wreck is lying upright on the sea-bottom at 32m.
