With Saudi Arabia once again being open for regular tourism we can once again get access to one of the last frontiers for diving in the world. The reefs on here are untouched and pristine and with so few boats operating you are guaranteed to have it basically all to yourself for the duration of this trip. Jacques Cousteau described his first encounter with this part of the Red Sea back in 1963 “as the most diverse reef system in the world”, on the his first expedition to the Red Sea.
