We stayed at Iberotel Fanara Club, and had excellent dive and snorkel experiences here! Eagle rays, corals, ginormous trigger fish, and so much more!

there are many local dive sites in sharm and here is the one of the best one. you may see enormously big snappers and groupers around. on the other hand it is a kind of manta ray high way where you can see them passing by in deep water.
