The small island lies very south in the Red Sea, not far from the island of Zabargad. Rocky Island is small but fine and wild.

The north side is exposed to wind and weather and can sometimes have a strong, changing current. This can lead to very fast drift dives.

Also, the eastern side is relatively unprotected and has a strong current. Which also attracts big predators and you have a great chance to see sharks and other big fish.

The south side is more protected and easier to dive.

Usually, the dives here are not so deep, about 18 meters.

Rockys Island offers an incredible variety of flora and fauna. Overhangs where you can dive underneath. Large lettuce and brain corals, purple stone corals and also the rare black corals can be found. In the crevices and under the overhangs you may also find baby sharks.
