Description dive spot:
The dive site is also often referred to as Sha'ab Sabrina and is located in the strait between Big Giftun Island and Small Giftun Island. Sha'ab Sabina is a reef tongue projecting eastward from Big Giftun into this road.
Around the dive site spreads a large and beautiful coral garden. Often you can see turtles, big puffer fish and other loners like parrotfish.
There is also the possibility for a drift dive over the coral garden.
