Aqaba Dive Site 5: King Abdullah Reef

Named after King Abdullah II, this is a popular reef for divers. There is a beautiful fan coral on top of the reef and here you get to see large shoals of Pennant Fish and Torpedo Rays are also common here.

You usually start the dive exploring the reef with the fan coral and then cross over the gulley and make your way south along the reef.

Turn north when the air supply is dwindling and come back to the shallows where you will find shoals of Fusiliers ending up at the mooring. In addition, Hawskbill Turtles are often spotted at this site.
