Marsa Alam is a small Egyptian locality (it counts up about 10.000 residents) lying 270km south of Hurghada. It has its own airport removed exactly at 60km north off the town. Within its area, along the coastline, over a distance of a few dozen kilometers, there are located hotels enjoying peace and remoteness of this place from “the rest of the world”. It stands in total contrast to typical Egyptian resorts. With an addition of ravishing coral reefs, we get what divers love most of all.
Marsa Alam offers undefiled, almost virgin diving sites, both those beside the coast and those available from the boat. Abu Dabab, Elphinstone, Dolphin House are perhaps the most famous places in the surroundings. You will encounter turtles there, as well as dolphins, sharks and sea cow with a stroke of luck. If you did not have a chance to go there you definitely must see it.
