Description dive spot:
Abu Ramada West is good for drifting. Here you can comfortably drift from the northwest end of the reef to the south. There are all sorts of interesting fish in the sheltered zones.
In the southern part of the dive site, the wreck of a dive boat is supposed to lie. Here the corals are quite destroyed. Interesting, however, are the coral blocks on the southeast side.
