Just offshore, about 15 minutes south from the Merdian Fujayrah, lies Sharm Rocks: four small outcrops of rock just breaking the surface. These rocks are covered in soft corals and provide a haven for all kinds of marine life. Large shoals of jacks, snapper, large-mouth mackerel and fusiliers use the rocks as shelter from large tuna which hunt from out in the blue. Life includes lionfish, morays, batfish, boxfish, shrimps, turtles and black-tip reef sharks. Whale sharks have been seen at this site, although I expect rarely and only when the waters are at their warmest. The circuit of the four rocks can be done in one dive of about an hour.
