We booked a trip through our hotel in El Gouna. There was our family and another english couple that were on the day trip with a private guide. The beach was very lovely and well looked after. The snorkeling was amazing! Coral is untouched and so many fish. A great day out.

Sharm el Naga is a wonderful place to visit , its beach is clean and easy to enter , a gentle slope into the clear blue sea , the fish are in the shallow water , good for people who don't like deep water . Once in the water it opens up to a wonderful deep coral with the best... More

It's a really nice place for Snorkeling. Most of the Snorkeling excursions will be done on a boat but there you can go directly from the beach and the coral reef is well preserved and there is a big variety of fishes. The beach is nice and they have sunbath chairs with nice umbrellas. We also had a nice lunch... More

Sharm El Naga is an inexpensive, excellent diving and snorkeling spot. I have only snorkeled here, but I definitely will come back to also dive.

It is crowded with fishes and corals best place to go for quite seekers, you can get it by boat or directly from the beach, best place for couples or singles not a family hang out.

Sharm El Naga is the best place for snorkeling if you want to see lots of fish, even in the shallows, pristine coral and, if you're lucky, the resident turtle too. The diving is equally good, a nice calm beach entry quickly moving to the deeper water. When I went there was little wind and current which made for an... More

This was a great beach for off-shore snorkeling. You don't have to go very far in the water at all to see fish, and the reef is in really great shape and obviously protected more than some of Egypt's other reefs. We saw a big variety of fish, really beautiful coral, and one in our group even saw a sea... More

Shore diving is a bit rare near Hurghada and a site like this is perfect for all with shallow through to some very deep water for diving. Amazing fish life and helpful and professional staff at the dive base on site

You can do both rught from the beach. No long boat trip to the reef, you just swin into it and the wonderful life under the sea- The incredible fish are totally different from the fish in Hurghada.

Think the best way to describe this is rustic, not overcrowded and relaxing. Great for a full day out with snorkelling direct from the beach with lots if fish around you from the edge of the water. Sunbeds and shade are provided but need to take own towels etc. Drinks and food available. Don't let the road to it put... More
