This is a beautiful bay in Marsa Alam. I saw a giant turtle calmly eating sea grass underwater near the beach. Also, when snorkeling around the reef, I saw a lot of different kinds of Red Sea marine life.

If you are lucky you will meet dugong here. It came twice when we were there. There is also a big handicapped turtle with 3 flippers. This place is promoted as Turtles's house, but we haven't seen any other turtles except for the handicapped one.

If you like to see the dolphins, seecow or turtles, this is the right place to go. You can walk from hotel The Three Corners or for few money go by quad.
