Overall Guide : Excursions to the Eastern Desert are available. Take a camel trek or a jeep/quad bike safari around the region. On the way you can stop at a traditional Bedouin oasis, and experience the local flavour. You can also catch some... more desert wild life at the Wadi Gimal National Park. Along the desert road to Marsa Aslam, at Kanais, lies a small rock-cut temple built by Seti I (1305-1290 BC). A little further, you’ll come across prehistoric rock inscriptions of hunting scenes and trading expeditions. Also on this route are the ancient gold and emerald mines in the mountains south of town; today it is rich only in phosphate. When here visit the tomb of 13th-century Sufi Sheikh Sayyed El-Shazli. A moulid is celebrated here on the fifteenth day of the Islamic month of Shawal every year.   Marsa Alam has the most beautiful coral reefs and exotic marine life, which makes it a popular diving location. Some of the more known sites here include: Elphinstone (famous for its hammerheads), Samadai or Dolphin Reef, the famous St Johns Reef, Abu Dabab, Shaab Marsa Alam, Daedalus Reef, Shaab Sharm (Gota Sharm), Habili Gamal and many more.    Take an excursion to Zabargad, a mountain rising out of the sea; it is surrounded by a lagoon and a circular reef with lots of ghostly shipwrecks.

Overall Guide : The sea is fantastic, especially in the Bay of Abu Dabab, it's easy to get into the water. The excursions are not to be missed, swim with dolphins (it's a unique experience to swim with dolphins in the wild) and... more don't miss the trip to Luxor and the Valley of the Kings; go into the wilderness with a quad bike. The locals are very friendly and helpful and love to make friends.

Overall Guide : For lovers of diving and anybody else, the coral reef is absolutely not to be missed! As soon as you dip your head under the water, you're overcome by a world full of life and colorful fish of all sizes,... more sometimes almost touching you. And how could I not mention corals, so sharp and delicate, yet alive. A real spectacle ..
