Egyptian Bermuda Triangle
About 35 kilometers away, west of the island of Shadwan, and facing the city of Hurghada, the Abu El-Nahhas reef area is located, it looks like a triangle like Bermuda Triangle, a quiet area without deadly water blooms, but it is characterized by deadly coral reefs, which often represented A deadly danger, reefs that cannot be seen with the naked eye, although they are in the corridors of the ships themselves, and the region contains the wreck of 5 giant ships, some of which are located at a depth of more than 30 meters and the British "Carnatic" ship is the oldest among the sunken ships in " Abu Nahhas. "In 1896, during its last trip to India, it collided with coral reefs that covered the corridors. That ship was loaded with gold, copper, wine and cotton, and the indigenous Bedouins of the area managed to save that shipment in the weeks following its sinking, and they were able to recover most of that shipment. Divers usually prefer to head to the wreck site to enjoy seeing it filled with soft corals, glass fish, crocodile fish, and lion fish.
Nearby, we can see the wreckage of the Greek ship "Chrysolac", a merchant ship carrying a shipment of tiles and stones, when it collided with the people of Abu Nahhas in 1978, which led to its sinking, and it is currently mooring over coral reefs, surrounded by many colored fish.
In the same year, the German ship "Kimon M" collided with these reefs and sank also, and is one of the most beautiful sunken ships, and you can dive next to them, even if your diving skills are modest, because its roof is located at a depth of 6 meters from the sea, and its bottom is found at a depth 32 meters.In 1981, the Greek cargo ship "Chrysoula K", which was carrying tiles and ceramics and was still in ruins, sank two years later. The "Abu Nahhas" reefs boarded a ship "Giannis D", a cargo ship belonging to a Japanese company, a shipment of wood, on its way She was passing through a narrow freight lane, and as soon as she entered the open waters, the captain handed the rudder to one of his officers, and it appears that the ship drifted from it to the west of its specified course, and rushed very quickly, causing it to sink, and on January 31, 1987, the German "Olden" ship sank In the same area.
