We had to pay £2.50 to get on the beach and were packed in like sardines next to unhappy Russians many of the were elderly and did leave at 1pm for lunch thank goodness. The snorkeling is not that good here either. Be warned there are many steps down there is a bar on the way down and the fresh... More

This is a perfect opportunity to see the beauty of the coral and fish living in perfect harmony. A must dive venue.

If you're in Sharm El Sheikh and you dive, you have to dive here. The coral life is booming and the variety of fish was incredible. We even saw a white tip shark for our very first dive!! The octopus sighting and lion fish were incredible too.

Only 100 LE (a tenner) from the airport by taxi. Baring in mind that the hotels are built on a cliff most have many steps but provide golf buggy transport around their complexes. Shops, pharmacies and restaurants are within walking distance if the golf buggies aren't required to move around your hotel. It's only 50LE by taxi to Naama Bay... More

snorkeling is a must. the beach for reef oasis is amazing. it is sandy and shallow in the beginning which allow everyone to go to the see especially kids. it has many fish by the shore as well.you do not need to go to the deep see to see fish

this seems to be the older end of the hotel areas but it does have some of the best snorkelling locations around lots of coral reefs. if you aren't in a hotel here there is a public beach that you can pay to enter for only a few Egyptian pounds and you get a towel thrown in for the price.... More
