The reef is really amazing with really easy access. You can meet there ampithrions and all other coral fishes :) And this white sand like on the Caraibic Islands :) Have a great time there!

We ate at a little Nomad place, where the fried fish was a million times better than in the Hilton. i also took a tripple portion of the egg-plant!!! The lagoon is nice and warm and you can walk over to the mangrove trees.

Where to begin!? This is an experience of a lifetime! If you have the time stay the night out there. This is a amazing experience, we went there in 4x4 vehicles to visit the Roman emerald mine as well as see the desert. This National park doesn't have one brick within it. The director of the park is fighting hard... More

No need to go to Dolphin houses they are all along the coast. Great dives and so magic with Dolphins in the area.

The place is so relaxing, nature and locals are very friendly. We camped thier for 3 days and it was ok. A lot of activities to do but start your days early dor beaches, snorkling. Night life is deficint but not needed if you are an amusing group.

Though the snorkling experience in this part of the red sea is very tempting and unique, make sure not to miss camping in the deserts of wadi el gemal as well. When you visit wadi el gemal desert take time to get in touch with the localies. Mingle with people, they are very friendly and will be proud to brag... More

We were there in September 2012. One day trip, taxi from Sentido Hotel. What is Wady? It's actually only the sea and Diving center. The beach is only sand, it's actually wild beach. But I like it. The closest hotel is Shams Alarm. And the trip can be only one day if you don't live in this hotel because absolutely... More
