Brilliant location to either snorkel or dive, I never tire of this site! For shore based snorkelling with a great Italian restaurant I would recommend El Fanar

It is a good spot for snorkling and diving. If you haven't been diving a lot in the red sea, then you'll just love it. Probably one of the top spots from shore.

Well if your an avid snorkeler you`ll love this place, so many different species of really colorful fish that you will want to come back again as the water visibility is fantastic as well as the temperature which usually hovers around the 26*c mark so your toes won`t get cold either, so go there & enjoy.

Great dive sites. Gorgonas, soft coral in caves, napoleonfish, morenos, jackfish, parrotfish, seastar- super. Be careful- sometimes very strong current. One of the best places in SSH

It's the perfect diving spot for both morning and night dives. they have nice food and drinks, and if your partner is not into diving they can do diving or simply chill with quite a nice see view till you return from your dive :)
