Dive site the Caves is quite misleading as it is actually only one large overhang or cavern. Entry and exit conditions can be hard as current and wind creates a choppy and rough sea. The site is entered by literally throwing yourself off the reef right in front of the cave. Don't forget that the cave, although nice, is not the only reason to dive here. The reefs to the north and south are excellent as well, with thriving aquatic life and superb coral and rock formations. Sponges, black coral, wrasses, turtles and moray eels are some of the highlights.

The Caves, located south of Dahab, is a slightly misleading name, as the 'cave' is in fact more of a large overhang. This is still, however, a good dive site for the unusual rock formations and variety of sealife. The dive starts by following the gentle sloping drop-off following the shore where the sandy bed provides a home for garden eels, pipefish and wrasse, which dive into the sand as you approach. The pinnacles provide an interesting site with sea-life including turtles, morays, lionfish and Napoleon wrasse. The dive finishes up in the caves, which provide shelter for several dozing puffers.

The entrance to this site is from the shore, with a stride entry into the caves area. Entry and exit can be quite tricky due the waves crashing into the shore so be prepared to be an excellent buddy, and save some energy for getting out after!
