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

I go to Sharm El Naga every chance I get (well over a dozen times in the past 2 years) and absolutely love it every time. I will say, if you cannot live without television or being unplugged form your internet then this place may not be for you. It is simple and just for pure relaxation! It has the... More

The beach is nice with easy access to good coral reefs to snorkel. Fully equipped and staffed dive shop is professional and provides good service. The actual snorkel and dive area is quite small in size however, there is a lot of marine life to see. The rooms are quite dirty and old and the food was less than stellar... More

Although a bit of a trip from Hurghada, Sharm El Naga has some of the best snorkelling and beach in the area. The food in the cafe is pretty basic fare and the service is always absolutely atrocious, but it's a fantastic relaxing day out!
