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

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

Don't bother visiting the reserve centre unless you speak Arabic. However you can walk freely and we should be grateful that the Egyptians are trying to protect the area. We only visited the costal strip from the hotel south to the Dom Palms and were unable to arrange a trip into the interior.
