The Temple is one of the best known dive sites in the straits of Tiran and is used a lot for training dives by dive schools in Sharm el-Sheik. The Temple is ideal for this as it has good visibilities, shallow depths, calm waters and virtually no winds. It is a series of three pinnacles rising up from 20 meters of depth to the surface and separated by sand. The biggest one, also known as the tower, has been split in two what makes it possible to swim through it. You will see fan corals, lion fish, stone fish, parrotfish and many of the other common reef fish. It is still a nice site, with a lot of coral and marine life, but tourism has taken its toll.
