The Pipeline is a very unusual but attractive dive site located close to an Israeli Desalination Plant which has never been used. In the seventies, the Israeli army placed here two pipelines at only 5 meter apart. Now, the pipes are covered in table coral and soft corals which attracts many species of fish. They both start in 5 meter of water and gradually descent to 12 and 20 meters of depth. It is hard to find them so it is best to take a guide at all times.
Pay attention to the visibility as that can make or break this dive. Marine life is great in good visibility with many lionfish, frog fish and morays. Keep an eye out for rays in the blue and stingrays in the sand. Diving here is often combined with dive site House Reef, which is a very attractive reef a bit to the north. It is also a very popular night dive.
