This is an excellent site for diving and snorkeling. Corals are not as nice as some other sites (japaneese garden, kiwi reef, etc.) but some interesting species can be found (saw a hudge spanish dancer)...
At the moment and fior the forseeable future it is no longer allowed to dive at the Saudi Border for security reasons by shore or by boat.

Saudi Border - All dive centers have now been asked by the Aqaba Marine Park to help save some of the corals at the Saudi Border by chipping them off and putting into baskets to be replanted at the Marine Science Station. This is the precursor to a new port being built here for the ferries to Egypt. There will be no more recreational diving here, ever. Its a shame but money always comes first!
