Temple

At the center of the Ras Umm Sid bay, a huge coral pillar extends skywards, the reef wall drops to 15m. There are lots of pinnacles which are well worth exploring, this is a good spot to see the octopus. The rest of the site is featureless and it is easy to get lost so don’t forget your compass. Look out for Spanish Dancers, free swimming Moray Eels and other incredible life on a night dive here.
