Sha'ab Sataya is a huge natural lagoon, south of the Fury Shoals, where you can dive beautifully. It is formed by a large reef (Sha'ab). Sataya's popularity is increasing. Not only because of the steep drop-offs or pinnacles that are coffered in soft and hard corals. You also see a lot of pelagic species such as sharks and rays. The real attraction of Sataya is a large group of spinner dolphins that come here regularly.
Sha’ab Sataya is home to a group of more than a 120 dolphins. The best is to snorkel with them early in the morning.
Outer reef only suitable for advanced divers.
