Just a few kilometers south of Zabargad Island is the Rocky Island, designated as one of the underwater wonders of the world. An abundance of marine life is found all around the island. Its sheer walls draped in colorful soft corals, sponges, and sea fans drop vertically down to the first plateau at about 25 meters, then dropping down to 50+. The southern tip features several caves and overhangs where a great deal of shark and pelagics are cruising by. Strong currents make the Rocky Island suitable for advanced level diver.
