Aqaba Dive Site 20: Paradise

This site was given the name Paradise because of the huge amount of red soft coral growing in the area which catches the current.

The dive is best made as a drift dive from a boat. It is great for colour balancing when taking photos or video.

Humphead Wrasses, Unicorn Fish and octopuses are all common here as well as Lionfish.

If you look around the pinnacles you will also find several varieties of Moray Eels.

The depth range here is suited to all divers, but good buoyancy control is required to preserve this wonderful site for future divers.
