Abu Aklas (has also other names, e.g. Sha'ab Claudio) is a very beautiful dive spot in the Red Sea.
There is a nice cave between 6m-9m and a big, healthy stone coral garden around the main reef.
Today this spot is dived very often by liveaboard and day tour guests, so the site is sometimes a bit crowded. In the past there was quite some fish in the cave, but due to the big number of divers almost all fish has left.
