In 1981, a Panamanian dry cargo called “Lovilla” was very unlucky: the ship was stranded (which turned out to be nothing other than Gordon’s Reef). For several days the team tried to rescue the ship, but, as the sailors did not suffer, it was not possible to remove the ship from the shallows. For over 30 years, “Lovilla” has just been sticking out over the sea and is a moose for scuba divers. Gordon Reef itself is huge and home to dozens of species of marine life.

The peculiarity of Sharm el-Maya beach is that it is the only sandy beach (not a bay) in Sharm el-Sheikh, all others are coral, and one cannot walk on it without special shoes.

It is a diver’s paradise, but swimming on such beaches is very difficult and even dangerous – the corals begin almost at the shore.
