Golden Blocks is a mix between coral gardens and sandy areas with almost all coral species represented. It has a coral slope with three sandy alleys in it. The first one starts at 10 m and drops down to 30 – 40 m. Here lies Dahab’s only real wreck, a paddle boat at 20 m.
The second slope is like a small canyon with a beautiful little island of corals. At the third slope you will find an impressive gorgonian fan at 22 m and beside it is a small cave. Shallower you have sandy areas with the ‘Golden Blocks’.
These are large coral blocks that go from 10m to the surface and are covered with anthias. Also in the shallower part you have beautiful table corals and small coral blocks where there is always a good chance to find big groupers or colorful nudibranchs.
There have also been sightings of manta rays in this area. This site can also be recommended to do drift dives towards Moray Garden.
