Forget about the Dead Sea! snorkeling in the Red Sea is what you have to do. Take a boat trip and hover over the Coral with the glass botom boat or snorkel to the famous ship wreckage. Or just dive into the water from the beach side and watch the many beautiful fish as soon as you are 2 meters... More

If you are not planning diving or do some snorkelling there is no reason to visit south beach. The beach is ugly and dirty and local people are very annoying!

cozy, a little dirty, a little too much smog in the air from the nearby power station. Has a nice beach restaurant you should check out, and kids areas that are pretty good.

Some writes negatively Because they chose the wrong place from the beach I have much experience at least 14 years as a guide for that area in that region South Beach is not relaxing at all Is dedicated to just snorkling Sandy beaches found in hotels where there is no coral This place is only for snorkling and scuba diving
