Sharm El Naga is just the best bay for snorkelling. Until now there are just a few hotel units built, and the owners take very much care about the reef. I go there for the last 18 years and there is not much change in the reef life since then. It is like snorkelling in an aquarium. Best if you... More

I go to Sharm El Naga a few times a year. I wish this area would be declared a protected area to preserve its fascinating coral reef. Snorkelling and diving, you will see defferent sea creatures every time. The place is safe for young children to play in small desert surrounding the beach. There is also a swimming pool. If...

The best part about it is no need to take a boat and the worry of getting sea sick and all, you simply drive to it, juts north of Safaga on the base of Soma Bay compound this version bay is unbelievably virgin. the management simy renewing some things but hope they keep it with it natural beauty.

A day trip out - lunch and snorkeling. The snorkeling was excellent, the fish close and beautiful. The coral has not been destroyed and we enjoyed our day!

Excellent place. We booked with Book Tour Egypt and spent the day here. It was great. I panicked when I saw the bottom of the sea disappear but then went back and rented a well fitting life jacket for 3 euros. That was a great move! I snorkeled right out over seriously deep water and saw so much sea life!... More
