Absolutely cool, shining and incredible colours. Lots of different fishes, plants and corals of colours I couldn't imagine. I also saw turtles. Such good emotions. <3

The reefs at Marsa Shoona are amazing, absolutely teeming with life and absent any tricky currents. We did 2 days diving here in one holiday, and saw such a huge range of stuff we could have kept coming back.

A very highly recommended dive site. Close to hotels, u get to see the view of port ghalib going in and out. As any other dive site in the world there are too many divers and liveaboards. Visibility about 30 meters, and a very rich reef.

When you enter these warm waters you are blown away by the amount of fish and corals around, Hamada our dive guide with Colona divers spotted just about every creature you could possibly see in the Red sea.

We stayed at the Hilton whose beach is on this reef bay. The fish were plentiful, and the water was not deep, so the bottom of the reef is visible from the surface. Great beach, with public available lounges and umbrellas. Also bathrooms and restaurants available, as well as a very popular diving center. Many divers all day, but not... More
