This is one of the finest and most affordable resorts in the world. There is no end of activity to partake in the water. My problem is that my eyesight is so poor that I need strong glasses and they don't work out well in water. Consider investing in prescription water goggles if you want full use of this attraction.

Bit expensive for entry to the beach for what it is but worth it for the odd day. Nice pizzas. Taxi cost 10 Egyptian to get back

Dive site with an abundance of marine life. Protected in a cove for both boat and shore diving. Used this location as a third dive of the day and maxed at 18 meters. On the dive we saw 4 scorpion-fish, 1 stone-fish and the elusive juvenile emperor-fish. Tons of corals on the wall of the fringing reef and the sloping... More

This is one of the best swimming spots in Sharm. There are much to see. The place has both shallow and deep spots. Great for snorkelling. I have seen more creatures than I saw in all my scuba dives combined (around 50 dives) snorkelling there alone. Because of this rich marine life it is a very popular scuba dive site.... More

I did a dive here and was very impressed by the quality of the reef and clarity of the corals. Very rich variety and number of fishes. All with a short walk from local hotels. There is almost no beach, but the loungers are comfortable and sit just above the jetty.
