Sharks Bay All year destination for families and couples Sharks Bay is situated to the North of Naama Bay. This amazing bay consists of a rocky yet pristine shoreline where a deep sandy canyon drops rapidly through the reef to an approximate depth of more than 60 meters. It is rich with soft coral reefs and a wide array of marine species including barracudas, spotted eagle rays, and sharks, after which the bay was named. To the south, the reef has a moderate slope coated with corals, whereas to the north it is a shallow area that suits the purpose of light snorkeling. The average depth of Sharks Bay ranges from 98 to 280 meters, which therefore requires advanced divers to be able to enjoy diving and snorkeling through numerous sites at the bay.
