60 Egyptian Pounds to get in, that included a towel and a bottle of battle. Great place - wish we found it earlier!

Costs 60 L.E to get in and that gets you a towel and a bottle of water. Bar and food are very good the Pizzas are very nice indeed (as of April'13)

Sit Jetty side if you want to get the sun all the way through the day the other side looses it later on a bit.

Snorkels were 25 L.E to rent and you are straight off the jetty and straight in to some pretty decent reef, or its quite nice just to float about in the sea.

Diving is also very good from here and not very expensive.

This beach is very good for snorkeling. You'll find plenty of cool fish to study beneath the water surface and also some corals in different colors.

I went here during my stay at Aida Better Life Resort, and unfortunately this hotel has the worst part of the beach, where every sunbed is cramped together. It almost feels like you're lying upon other people. I did get a glimpse of other parts of this beach though, and they seem much better.

If you're connected to El Fanar through your hotel you'll probably have free shuttle bus service and free entrance to this beach. If that's not the case there will be a entrance fee.

Beware of the sharp edged stones on this beach but more importantly, enjoy!

We've enjoyed the afternoon we've spent there. It was quiet and relaxing, the reef was by far the best in Sharm, what else would you want..

Far better that Shark Bay as it is less spoilt & destroyed! Get there early if you want to pick your spot and there is a small charge to get in but you get a bottle of water along with a fruit kebab if you are early enough.
