The last in the north and the most beautiful of the fourth reefs of the Straight of Tiran. There is the Lara's wreck (a cyprot big cargo ship that in 1985, in navigation in the night went against the reef) upon the Reef in the north. Beautiful fire coral garden (max dept 7.5mt)full of soft corals and a big salad coral on the west part of the reef; beautiful big fan corals, black corals, and beautiful very red anemon (28mt depth), in the middle, with sandy bottom max depth 45mt; on the east vertical wall with a lot of fan corals and massive corals and soft corals. All the divers want to do "Jackson outside", in the north, close to the Lara's wreck, in the blue, 'cause there is a Scalloped Hammerheads's observer area and in the summertime is full of Scalloped Hammerheads Sharks. The reef outside, in the north, is poor of marine life, 'cause there's no light, 'cause the rays of sun don't touch that area.
