Shark Reef and Jolande

Shark and Jolande Reefs lie at the southern tip of Ras Mohammed. The north-south current takes you from Shark Reef to Jolande Reef. The Jolande was a Cypriot freighter that sank here in April 1980. Most of the wreck washed off the reef into deep water in a heavy storm in 1987, but her cargo of bathtubs and ceramic toilets remains on the reef.
