PG Slots Abu Nuhas from Hurghada – Divemania

Shaab Abu Nuhas, or Sha╩Żb Abu Nu─žas, is a triangular-shaped coral reef northwest of Shadwan Island in the northern Red Sea off Hurghada. The reef is a navigation hazard because it projects into the shipping channel, as evidenced by seven shipwrecks.

The reef has been known by various names throughout history: “Abu Nuha”, “Karakat” (meaning “burnt”), “Karkady”, and “Shaab Abu Nuha”. It is also called “Shaab Abu Nuhas” after its most famous feature: a rock formation resembling two camels with their heads touching. The site was discovered in 1822 by a French officer named Captain Louis Duperrey, who mapped it as number 7 on his chart of the Red Sea. In 1835, it was listed on British Admiralty charts as “Karkady”, which may be an Arabic spelling of the Greek word for camel (╬║╬Ȥü╬║╬▒).
