Careless Reef, Hurghada

4.6
#6 of 15 in Parks in Hurghada
Swim through a coral garden across a shimmering plateau along Careless Reef, a popular diving site. This isolated 60 m (197 ft) deep wall stands between Shaab Umm Qamar and Giftun islands and features dense coral forests and colorful fish. The reef, which sits on two peaks brushing the water's surface, is home to a large population of semi-tame moray eels and brightly colored marine life. Experienced divers can explore caves from 40 m (131 ft) down and deeper. Hammerhead sharks, tuna, jacks, and barracudas can be spotted at deeper depths.

  • We have now visited Careless Reff a lot of times and the place is OK-but there is almost always a lot of power. We much prefer to visit other dive sites where there is not so much power. I mean that places are a little uppublicized.

  • Maybe for snorkeling or as part of a tour program when visiting some island - yes, but for the excursion diving did not like at all, the depth is small, the fish is very small, the reef itself is beautiful, but as it seemed to me, little inhabited
