Marsa Alam

The Red Sea creates ideal conditions for growth of coral reefs. A very warm water and depth eliminating an effect of surface waves give exactly ideal conditions for growth of corals. No larger rivers do not flow into sea, thanks to which water is exceptionally clean here, and this makes sunbeams reach deep below the surface. Thanks to it reefs in the Red Sea develop at greater depths than in any other places.
