The typical depth range for Ras Um Sid is 20 to 80 feet and is best accessed by a shore dive, dive boat and local guide. The expertise required for this area is a snorkeled, novice, advanced, dive master or instructor.

This site lies at the mouth of Mersa Bereka, the large shallow bay that nearly separates Ras Muhammad itself from the Sinai mainland. The reef follows the shoreline at the bay's northern point: a sheer but shallow inshore wall gives way to a sloping, patchy reef face below about 15m (50ft).

It's hardly worth listing the vast array of coral at this site - if it exists in the Red Sea, you'll find it here. Fish life is abundant all across the reef in a riot of scintillating color. This is possibly the nicest spot on the southern coast for small reef species.

Unlike the popular, but overcrowded sites, this superb site is not visited by hordes of divers each day, so its delicate beauty has been preserved.
