It truly took my breath away. Spent 2hrs here in the early morning snorkelling, just an amazing experience.

I think it is great for divers, actually i tried snorkeling, the view is perfect, a different feeling lots of fish, my advice to go when less people are swimming.

Great for tec diving in and around the arch, a popular free diving destination. Don't be put of about its deadly reputation or the memorial markers attached to the cliffs. Other then that, it's blue, it's a hole, and it's very deep.

This is certainly something not to be missed, the last part of the journey on a dirt track belies the number of people visiting. I did feel the presence of free divers going up and down their suspended ropes detracted from the experience. But i suppose there are very few places where they can practice their hobby so close to... More

There are nice reefs for snorkeling on either side of the Blue Hole. The Blue Hole itself is more of a diver destination, and the reef in this area has been damaged by too many visitors. There's no beach here, to speak of, but there are plenty of comfortable restaurant / lounges along the water front. No need to pay... More

This place is definitely worth a visit if you want magical views. There is no real beach areas but the views itself should be able to easily compensate.

It is an amazing site but even these days very busy with visitors from Sharm. The actual dive is interesting and the feeling of unfathomable water beneath you is quite daunting
