From Port Sudan you drive south for about 7.5 hours until you reach Tamashiya, a small island in the north of the archipelago with white sand and vegetation typical of dry climates.
The reef has a slightly rectangular shape. It slopes gently downwards and creates a beautiful coral garden (at a depth of 15 m) with large, coral heads.
Immediately after jumping off the boat, you will see two slender pinnacles standing a few meters apart with a shape resembling a mushroom. They are almost completely covered with colorful soft corals.
This is a great place for a check dive: similar to an aquarium, you will be prepared for the following dives.It is also worth exploring the northwest side of Tamashiya. The abundance of life found here, as well as the weak current is perfect for exciting night dives.
