Hamata

Peace, tranquillity, relaxation and plenty of diving.

Hamata is the most southern resort in the Red Sea. The only things here are the hotels and the diving. Perfect for a relaxed trip for all types of divers. You will find reefs in good condition without many other divers.

Insider's View

Hamata’s pristine dive sites remained the sole preserve of liveaboard boats and have consequently remained relatively unvisited. There are very few resorts in this region, and two of our absolute favourites includes Wadi Lahmi Village and the Lahami Bay Beach Resort.

Hamata offers access to some of the best reef systems available in the Red Sea. Fury Shoals and St. Johns are some of the most southern reefs with several dive sites to choose from. This destination is the last harbour from where liveaboard boats leave from to visit the most remote diving destinations, diving the fabled islands of Zabargad and Rocky, home to an overwhelming quantity of underwater fauna and a favourite destination for all diving holidays in the Red Sea.

Fury Shoals is a large system of reefs growing on top of a shallow shelf 13km offshore to the north of Ras Banas offering just over 35 excellent dive sites. Here the walls are sheer and have a rich variety of hard and soft corals, sea fans and sponges growing on them. Opportunities to encounter white tip and grey reef sharks are common year-round and hammerheads can be seen in the summer. St John's has a collection of small reefs offering you remote and rewarding diving. Giant gorgonians, black corals, grey reef, silvertip and schools of hammerhead sharks might be found on the west side of Habili Ali.
