The Marsa Mubarak Bay, know also like "Turtle Bay" is a fantastic beach, were you can see the Turtles and the Dugongo. Early in the morning is easier to see the turtles because still there are boats with tourists!

We've been to so many spots on the red Sea but this one is the best by far! Not only you can see the rare sea cow and turtles in the same spot you get to see amazingly colorful corals with tons of fish around it. What else could u ask for!

We where located in Marsa Alam, and did the trip to this location by bote, the sea-cow should be awesome (but we didn't see it), some turtles, but the coral is not that spectacular.

The whole day boat trip for snorkelling and diving in order to see mainly turtles and sea cows. It is amazing to see coral reef along with sea life.

Marsa Mubarak is both a beach trip and a boat trip. Be careful when booking! The beach trip: You are taken by car/ mini bus and dropped off for the duration, left alone, its in the middle of no where. We booked (Local taxi company Steve). They were very good, got packed lunch, and plenty of water. Only stayed for... More

A bay by the shore with moderate variety of corals and sea life. Ain't worth the effort nor the money if you plan a daily diving trip with the boat.
