Golden blocks is a dive site special for its variety of coral types and named after the two huge coral towers covered with anthias. There are leather corals, broccoli coral, gorgonians, sponges, table coral and nice feather coral. Actually it is a dive site with three coral gardens separated by small sandy valleys all in depths between 10 and 30 meters. There is a small paddle wreck near the first coral slope at 20 meters. The second one is like a canyon and the third one has a huge sea fan and a small cave next to it.

The dive site Golden Blocks is a mix between coral gardens and sandy areas with almost all coral species represented. It has a coral slope with three sandy alleys in it and a seagrass area. The first one starts at 10m and drops down to 30 - 40m. Here lies Dahab's only real wreck, a paddle boat at 20m. The second slope is like a small canyon with a beautiful little island of corals. At the third slope you will find an impressive gorgonian fan at 22m and beside it is a small cave. Shallower you have sandy areas with the 'Golden Blocks'. These are large coral blocks that go from 10m to the surface and are covered with anthias. Also in the shallower part you have beautiful table corals and small coral blocks where there is always a good chance to find big groupers or colourful nudibranchs. There have also been sightings of manta rays in this area. This dive site can also be recommended to do drift dives towards Moray Garden.
