Marsa Alam holidays are a relatively new concept as this is still a fairly new up and coming resort. Built up from a small fishing village, this increasingly popular choice is set to firmly compete with Sharm el Sheikh for your affections.
Located on the west coast of the Red Sea and being the southern most resort in this area ensures a tropical paradise of mangroves, palm trees and colourful coral reefs lying enticingly off the shoreline.
Holidays in Marsa Alam are a beach lover's paradise with straw laden umbrellas offering shade from the glorious sunny days. The biggest attraction though has to be the endless blue waters and nearly 100 km of stunning coral reefs. Snorkelers and scuba divers are in their element here with jetties stretching out to some of the reefs so that even the most timid of beginners can have a go.
For the more seasoned of divers there are excursions to the breathtaking Elphinstone Reef, with walls that drop over 70 m into the depths of the sea, an endless vision of colourful corals. Dolphin House is another popular dive site with vivid colours and marine life such as morays and hammerhead sharks to keep you company. Deep sea fishing excursions also offer an unrivalled chance to see snappers, tuna, lobster and reef sharks. There is also a marine nature reserve stretching right down to Gebel Elba in the south.
