the best place to watch sunset in Sharm )) absolutely love it! Nice restaurant with the variety of dishes and soft music. Comfortable sun beds at the beach area. The Dive site is great with the strong current sometimes and huge Gorgonias

Been to this place twice now. Egp100 for entrance, with use of towel. Sea life as soon as you step off the jetty. Perfect way to cool off with the weather. Salami pizza is quite good. Definitely coming back before our vacation ends
