A reasonable dive site but on what criteria is it the best in UAE? Most of the wildlife is composed of Sergeant Majors, moray eels and scorpionfish. around the base of the rock you can find an occasional ray, some large pipefish at the deeper end and plenty of goby / shrimp life in the sandy areas. Of the wildlife listed above I have only see a couple of Hawksbill turtles

Forgot to mention that this dive site is not in Dubai but on the east coast of UAE near Khorfakkan
