Very rare to get to dive here due to its exposed location. However if you get the chance then definitely give it a go. Fantastic reef with a breathtaking drop off.

The Careless reef is a very good diving place. It is not sure that you can come to the reef al times. There must be NO WIND before you can get there. The place is excellent and the reef is not damaged from many divers

It is an must visit place when you go to Hurghada, the sea world you see is stunning! If you cannot afford diving or you are afraid to do so, snorkeling will do the job!
