The mystical island Zabargad, also known as St. Johns Island, has much to offer. The reefs here are spectacular. They are covered with coral gardens and terraces running down, with beautiful views. A true paradise for underwater photographers. Almost everything you see is worth a picture, certainly the wreck. It is an old freighter. Pretty overgrown and surrounded by colorful fish and pristine reefs.
Zabargad is the largest island in this region. It lies along Ras Banas, on the coast side of Sudan. The pristine beauty is amazing.
Far from the coast and (medical) facilities.
