South Lagoon

South Lagoon Dive Sitefrom Sharm el Sheikh

Lagoona is the reef just offshore of the island of Tiran. This site has more anemones and clown fish than any other area. This site is also famous for being the location where the Cunard liner went aground resulting in a fine by the Egyptian government of about $20 Million. The area that it hit has no coral remaining though the reef is slowly recovering. The dive is now usually conducted south of the impact area.

The dive is done from by the southern point of the reef, where often sharks sleep on the plateau, and then drift gently along heading north. There are large table corals and patches of anemones all along the slope.
