I did a dive here and was very impressed by the quality of the reef and clarity of the corals. Very rich variety and number of fishes. All with a short walk from local hotels. There is almost no beach, but the loungers are comfortable and sit just above the jetty.

Ras um Sid is a nice beach located at the southern tip of the Sharm el Sheikh peninsula. Here you can get lovely views of the Red Sea and also enjoy beautiful coral & colourful marine life while snorkelling off the beach. I had a nice time during my recent visit here
