DON’T FORGET YOUR TORCH!
Or more of large overhangs! Caves is the southernmost dive site accessible by car in Dahab. When the sea is calm, a stride entry off the edge of the reef table drops you on to a sandy slope. On your left a large cave starts at 5m and drops down to 20m. You can continue along a coral reef leading to a sandy patch where you can see Turtles, Pipefish and the occasional Guitarfish. With a torch to explore the caves, you can find some strange Flatworms, unusual Nudibranchs, Morays and giant Pufferfish. To the south of the entry another cave is situated at around 5m with many black corals. The caves are a great spot for wide-angle photography, with pretty lighting effects.
