Rocky Island is a very small uninhabited island in the deep south of Egypt’s Red Sea. It’s triangular in shape, and measures just over 500 metres long and 300 metres wide. Its northeast & southeast sides are quite straight, and its western side is shaped in a gentle arc.
On all sides of Rocky Island, there’s a shallow plateau that extends from the island approximately 35 metres out to the sea, and then the water drops off to become very deep.
The surrounding deep water and the remote & exposed location give the best chances of seeing exciting marine life, including pelagic sharks.
The Northern & East shores of Rocky Island receives most of the wind, waves and current and is therefore more underwater action & to see some excellent marine life and corals.
