Ras Za’atar

 

A steep rocky headland plunges into the sea creating the dramatic wall dive at the start of this site.  Spectacular chimneys cut into the reef table above create a unique atmosphere as light filters down into the caves and crevices below.  As the dive rounds the corner of the promontory large trevally can be found hunting huge shoals of fusiliers and divers who know the site well will be watching carefully for large pelagics which often swing around the headland.  The last part of the site is a gentler plateau covered in hard and soft corals where thousands of Indian Parrot fish congregate in the early summer months.
