We got some great pics of the memorial work of art, a shrine to the plane crash in 2004. By night this place is... More

I went to this beautiful beach with a group of friends. Before me not to come here seem nothing special to do snorkeling . But here I changed impression . It is a beautiful place, where you can see all the Red Sea fauna Not to be missed if you arrive in Sharm El Sheikh

We had a very relaxing afternoon at this nice cosy restaurant located right on the cliff in Hadaba next to the memorial of the plane crash and overlooking the Red Sea I would recommend their pizza, pasta, mozarella salad and white wine Thank you for the great service guys !!!

This public beach costs EL40 for a sunbed for the day. The staff are very friendly and helpful, it's a wonderful sun-trap, and you can snorkel for hours in the shallow water of the reef flat, and see hundreds of beautiful fish.
