Review of South Beach

If you are not planning diving or do some snorkelling there is no reason to visit south beach. The beach is ugly and dirty and local people are very annoying!

cozy, a little dirty, a little too much smog in the air from the nearby power station. Has a nice beach restaurant you should check out, and kids areas that are pretty good.

The beach was nice, but the sand had lots of rocks, so bring your blankets. We visited in May and it was so hot, you needed foot protection to walk on it.

The reason why you go is the Red Sea is to swim and snorkel, which are fantastic. The Red Sea is where a lot of the pretty and neat looking fishes in aquariums come from. You'll see every color and some neat species like moray eels and lion fishes. To get an idea, google "red sea fish" and switch over to images. There is also lots of coral, but the fish actually outshine most of it by a lot. We spent two whole days snorkeling because it was so neat. And there's a military tank.

My one piece of advice is to take some good sunscreen or covering. The stuff we bought locally had to be reapplied every couple of hours, We couldn't find the all-day waterproof sun screen. At the time, that seems manageable. But we were having so much fun that 4 hours seemed like 2, so we got burned.
