Beautiful blue color water and sandy beach, unfortunately it is packed with parasols and tourists, including a very loud animation team. Probably one of the best beaches in Sharm El Sheikh, however we only went there once, I don´t think is worth going more times unless it is very close to your hotel.

There is a short jetty for divers to get down to the water. This is also used by snorkelers but there can be some significant currents on that piece of coastline and if you are swept around the corner, you will not be coming back. Shower(outdoor), toilets and places to get a snack on the headland. No beach but there... More

the reef is rather deep near the pontone, much better view for snorkeling if to swim right to the hotels in the bay

Diving was excellent with 2 very accessible reefs off a pontoon. During rest got a very good meal which was reasonably priced. Visited during an off peak season so there was not many people around. Beach area was clean and provided good sun shades and loungers free of charge.
