Saint John's coral reef in the South of the Red Sea off Egypt coast.
The coral reefs of Saint John are located in the South of the Red Sea off the Egyptian coast. This is maybe the most beautiful coral colonies of the area. The variety and the diversity of soft and hard coral are amazing. This is an explosion of colors, forms and shapes. Saint John is made with several small reefs distant from each other by several hours of boat. For us, photographers, the most beautiful site is with no doubt Habili Jaffar. It is a pinnacle covered with soft coral. This is an extraordinary site for scenic pictures. The second best site is Habili Ali. There are less soft coral colonies but more hard corals; this is very impressive. All the reefs are inhabited by many fish species which live and feed in the coral colonies. But Saint John is also made with caves. This is the site of Dangerous Reef which offers great rays of lights when the sun is at the zenith.
