Where and Tips
The reef of Abu Nuhas in the Red Sea is also called "The Ship's Graveyard". 4 wrecks are accessible for divers. The Giannis D. is one of the most exciting wrecks for diving. The cargo of the almost 100 meters long ship was wood when it sank in 1983. It hit the reef and split into two halves. The wreck lies in depth between 4 to 27 meters. It's great to dive zigzagging through the corridors and the engine room.
