World-leading snorkelling and scuba diving on the Red Sea
Whether striking out from Hurghada or Sinai, the Red Sea offers up some of the world’s great snorkelling and scuba diving. To step out of the lip-cracking, dust-devil desert into such a riot of colour and life is one of nature’s greatest sleights of hand. Hard and soft corals provide a kaleidoscope of colours, while a panoply of fish – some 1,000 species – get up close and personal with swimmers. Choose your site: whether it’s near the shores or from a boat, formidable sights abound, with soft coral gardens, pelagic fish, huge pinnacles and unfathomable drop-offs. Whether you’re a snorkeler or diver, the variety is what makes the Red Sea so great.
