Best snorkelling ever, paradise under the sea, a must see, entrance is a little bit expensive (75 LE) but it worth it. Nice place also to see the sunset, just beautiful <3

You have to pay to use this beach, but it is well worth it, snorkelling is awesome, extremely quiet and relaxing beach to be on would definately recommend a visit here.

Steep steps but we'll worth the walk down to the beach Not many public sun beds and not a lot of space but the sea and the coral are worth the swim out Take plenty of bottled water with you and a few Egyptian notes so you can get a cool drink at one of the cliff side bars The... More

First of all the beach is really beautiful, nice corals, good place for snorkeling and generally not bed way to spend time. Nice music, quite calm place. There are 2 entrances to the sea: to shallow water and to deep part so if you're not really good at swimming and don't feel confident on a big depth you can spend... More

Great snorkelling from the beach and the jetty. The restaurant at the top of the beach also did some great food at good prices.

Has a chill out feel which is a good contrast to nearby hotels. The jetty gives access straight onto an amazing reef with 30 meter drop off.

This is a pay to visit private beach ( well jetty) and bar. It is well worth a visit if you want to get away from the blaring music of the hotel Animation teams along the coast as the bar has several comfy sunbeds or cushioned areas to sit and listen to the sea , to a background of soothing...
