At a depth of between 25 and 10 meters, one can find the remains of the Jolanda, a Cypriot cargo ship that sank here during the night of April 1 to 2, 1980, on its way to Aqaba.


Containers, toilets, bathtubs, wallpaper, boxes of whiskey and even a BMW 320 that belonged to the captain are spread all over the plateau.
The ship, which partially rose above the water surface and was in an unstable position because the bow was vertically stuck in the bottom, was pushed by the waves to a depth of 50 meters in early 1987 and disappeared into the blue below during a violent sea storm on March 15 of the same year.


  • There are big malabar groupers, napoleon wrasses, single spot snappers and fusiliers. Especially in the sandy areas you can find blue spotted rays, scorpion fish, stone fish and crocodile fish.
