Halg Salmaan is a dive area where not many people dive. There are two different dive sites: Halg Maksour and Halg Hadana. In between you'll find a lagoon that often attracts large groups of spinner dolphins. Maksour in Arabic means 'broken' and refers to the reef wall filled with cracks and channels. A small but deep ravine and a huge pinnacle are the highlights, but in the shallow water you will see giant table and fire coral formations.
Hadana means 'breeding ground'. The fantastic pinnacles protect the young fish. To get there you have to dive over a sandbar, the hunting grounds of eagle rays. The pinnacle itself marks the beginning of a small lagoon which is home to large black and twin spotted snappers.
