Amazing nature!

The protectorate covers a large are of both desert and sea so you have plenty to do. Among the loveliest places are Sharm Al Louli beach, and Al Qulaan.

I visited Wadi El-Gimal on a day trip from Marsa Alam including Sharm El-Luli (Hinkorab) beach and Qaalan. Wadi Elgimal National Park is certainly much bigger and camping is maybe recommended for at least 1 night to go to the actual valley. I reviewed Sharm El-Luli separately so I will write here on Qulaan area. This is really a great... More

The Coast south of Marsa Allam has some of the best diving spots in the world. The desert overlooking the coast is spectacular . Go swimming in El Nayzak (the meteor) , then go to Qalaan for lunch and a swim in the lagoon then go to the National Park in Wadi el Gemal a little before sunset. Spectacular

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
