Really three "gardens" near, middle and far. The most seaward of the gardens (far), is a colorful fringing reef with a slope to 25m and dotted with small "ergs" At the top of the drop off there is a few pinnacles frequently visited by pelagics. Glass fish caves are in the reef wall at 12m.

Far Garden is situated in the northernmost part of a splendid bay just north of Naama Bay. Far Garden is considered a veritable underwater hanging garden because of the many coral formations and their configuration. There is a series of large coral pinnacles located between the ledge along the reef and the drop-off, which becomes gradually steeper in an eastward direction. The current generally runs eastwards, tends to get stronger closer to the headland. Here will be able to see gorgonian fans, lionfish, glassfish, and frequently mantas and turtles too.
