Near the south of Dahab is a dive site which consists out of a small area of sea grass, some pinnacles and some coral blocks. One of those groups at 18 meters of depth is called Lion Fish Rock, obviously because of the amount of lion fish that hover there. You will see many reef fish such as colorful anthias, glassfish, parrotfish, puffers and anemone fish. Some of the coral blocks are well decorated with beautiful pieces of coral. Enjoy the solitude and quietness of this dive.

Lionfish Rock is located in the south of Dahab. It is the first dive site in the Southern Oasis and can only be dived in calm conditions. Entry is over a slope of small stones to a unique dive for Dahab. Descend and cross a large seagrass area, which has small pinnacles scattered across the clearing. Swim slowly around the blocks and be amazed at the amount of marine life; you can find masses of red tooth triggers, cleaner shrimps, morays, nudibranchs and as the name suggests plenty of lionfish. Descend a little further at you will reach a beautiful coral block at 5 metres. Circling the area you will drift through anthias, anemonefish and giant morays. At 18 metres go to the right and you will come to a group of blocks known as 'the Lionfish Rock' where you will find numerous lionfish floating. Turn back and ascend to the 5-metre block where you can complete your safety stop while watching the glassfish, flatworms and if you are lucky you can see turtles or the occasional eagle ray.
