Amphoras, Naama Bay

The name of this site derives from 15th century shipwreck of a Turkish vessel with cargo of amphoras containing mercury. Amphoras lies southwest of the Tower. You will find a sandy slope that begins at a depth of about 12 m and has some coral pinnacles covered with beautiful coral of various species giving huge schools of glassfish shelter. At a depth of 25 m, firmly stuck into the reef, you can still see the stock of the original anchor of the ship with inscriptions as well as fragments of the amphoras from the wreck, which has decayed completely. Diving south towards the drop-off you will find some beautiful large gorgonian fans.
