Marsa Shagra is a really nice place to be. I spent 4 days there and had a great time. From the almost limitless diving (House Reef, Elphinstone, Nimp Island, Sharm Shuni, etc...), be it shore or zodiac dives, to the friendly people, the excellent food and restaurant, the friendly and professional staff, the merciless sun, Marsa Shagra is the place to be for the hardcore divers and "Chillers" alike. There isn't much to do when your done diving for the day except chill, have a drink and enjoy the company of family and friends. The bathrooms and tents are also very clean. I stayed in royal tent (A big tent that can take up to three, with a fan and a fridge) and it was Ok, you just need to be prepared to wake up close to sunrise (the heat and sunlight will if not your alarm to catch the first dive). The weather can get quite hot so be prepared. Book ahead to find a nice AC-cooled Chalet as the place is usually full when is a long weekend for Egyptians.
