Tiran Island

Wreck diving is popular off Tiran Island, surrounded by coral reefs and snorkeling lagoons in the Red Sea.

The wreck of the Sangria can be clearly seen here, its doomed hull rising above the surface of the sea.

The lagoons surrounding Tiran are ideal for swimming, snorkeling and diving, and the island is a popular destination for Red Sea excursions and diving tours.

Practical Info

Tiran Island lies off the shore of Na’ama Bay in the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea. It is one of many islands protected by Ras Mohamed Marine Park.
