The AIONA Reef light towers are the tallest among the rest of the reefs light towers around Yanbu Sharm. 3/4 of the shorter tower is submerged in water during high tide. There's a ship wreck underneath the north side of the reef of which according to unconfirmed local stories, "mostly from dive colleagues" is already more than 80 years old. The deepest part of the wreck is 130 to 160 feet if my SPG was telling me right.

Hello, this is Russ Rowlett, webmaster of the Lighthouse Directory, hosted at the University of North Carolina, USA. This photo includes the Schermo Reef lighthouse, and I am hoping you will allow me to use part of it on the Directory's page for lighthouses of Western Saudi Arabia. The Directory is an educational project, completely non-commercial. Please take a look (at the bottom of the page); I hope you will think this is a fair use.
