Ras Abu Galum is a small Bedouin village, located north of the Blue Hole. It is a protected marine area, with many different ecosystems represented there.
The charm of Ras Abu Galum lies partly in the pristine coral and abundant underwater life and partly in the simplicity of life there. With shelter provided by simple huts and an overnight stay providing the most amazing view of the night sky, Ras Abu Galum harks back to an earlier time in Dahab’s history and offers an excellent opportunity to truly get away from it all.
The dives will give you the opportunity to see a fantastic underwater landscape. On the North part of the coast after entering in a pool with sandy bottom, swim over the small ridge of coral and at about 6 meters a huge Madrepore tower with plenty of glassfish will be in front of you. Then a hard coral plateau with massive pore coral, beautiful table coral, Broccoli coral start will where Breams and Parrots and Angelfishes make their home.
On the south part of the dive site, the plateau gives place to a fantastic drop off with beautiful tower of coral on the top. Huge pufferfishes, school of Trevallies, Emperor fishes and Snappers are living here.
