Magic day trip from any Quseir, Marsa Alam, or, in my case, Berenice hotel from Hamata port. Pristine coral reefs, dolphins, manta rays if you're lucky, and Caribbean style white sands. Gorgeous. Worth the trip .. Or 4 trips I've taken..

Helas no Dolphins in sight not even far! Nearly two hours of snorkelling to discover that the corals and... More

Hotel clean and staff friendly(our teenage daughter felt uncomfortable!!!) food nice but little predictable after a few days. The high light was the snorkling!!!! It was a short stroll from the hotel and awesome!!! Like swimming in an aquarium.

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.
