Fasma Abu Fendera

Overview

The name Fasma means a channel between two reef blocks through which a boat can pass. Fasma Abu Fendera consists of two large main reefs and very many small blocks, which are beautifully overgrown. The maximum depth is 25 - 30 meters, in the shallower, sandy area 6 - 8 meters.

Description

The boat anchors in the lagoon. You let the zodiac take you through the channel and drop you off at the ergs (coral blocks). With the reef on your right shoulder, you head towards the channel, where a few meters from the entrance, at a depth of 15-20 meters, you will find a series of blocks beautifully covered with stony corals.

An exceptionally beautiful coral landscape has also developed in the mouth and in the channel. The towers are completely covered with soft corals in all colors. Here you should take the time to look for nudibranchs. Time flies here and you don't know where to look first.

Towards the end of the dive you cross the channel towards the boat and can dive out comfortably in the shallow area.

Around the Ergs you can find batfish, boxfish and in the sandy bottom crocodile fish and blue spotted rays.
