Paradise Reef


Site Position

Almost around the corner of Umm Khararim in the Foul Bay archipelago. Only 600 meters separates these dive sites. Paradise Reef is also known as Orabi amongst locals.


Sea Conditions

Fair weather conditions. Weak current. Mild waves. Shallow. Easy for all levels of divers.



Depth 3-17 meters. Interesting aspects can be traced at the southern site with a splendid coral garden, rising ergs like dripping wax candles, overhangs and caverns. You will spot darting fish against a background of attractively encrusted coral rocks. A fine and relaxing dive with adorable coral clusters.
