Ras Umm Sid
The name Ras Umm Sid is from the name of one of the great lighthouses that marks the entrance in the Strait of Tiran. Ras Umm Sid can be easily accessed from the shore. The entrance point is eastward of the lighthouse, just in front of the el-Fanar Restaurant. Immediately upon immersion you will come to a forest of gorgonians. Deepest points range from 14 to 25 meters (46-82 feet). There are numerous specimens of lionfish and parrotfish swimming around, as well as several species of groupers. At the depth of five meters (16 feet) is a cave, characterized by a "curtain" of glass fish. Here you can often encounter barracuda, tuna, and sometimes smaller sharks.
