Gordon Reef, Red Sea, is a famous dive site in Sharm El Sheikh and worldwide for the stranded wreck Louilla. This is the largest reef in diameter of all the reefs in the Straits of Tiran.
There is a shallow sandy area close to the reef with Blue Spotted Sting Rays, Cornet Fish, schooling Goat Fish and baby Napoleons. Next to this spot is a plateau of hard coral with schools of reef fish, such as Banner Fish, Butterfly Fish and Parrot Fish. The plateau ends in a drop off where divers may spot magnificent creatures, such as Manta Rays, Eagle Rays, Potato Groupers and often White Tip Sharks passing by.
