Abu Hashish is a very shallow dive site and means father of grass. Many stories are told about Egyptian sailors who dropped here their hashish, but actually the dive site is named after the amount of sea grass that is found at this site.

When currents are to strong, the dive is often done by drifting from the north to the south along the reef. Boats often moor in the sheltered and shallow lagoon nearby. You can leave the lagoon through a small canyon to enter a sandy plateau full of well covered coral bommies. Take your time to explore them because they are full of interesting but small creatures that make this dive special. You will see puffer fish, octopuses, morays and maybe some nudibranches, crab, seahorses and cuttlefish.
