Nice beach beeter for diving than for snorkeling though

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.

We went there with great friends . Some disturbing noise of construction !!! romantic place beside sea . Nice lighting and comfortable seats. No music or Dj probably because only 8 persons were in area . No tourist or locals any more . Hope to be fine in the near future

This place is a must visit purely for its incredible reef for diving and snorkelling, It is breathtaking and manta rays are spotted here frequently it's a lovely day and a lovely place even just to sunbath and have lunch. Oh and do try the massage lady its one of the best massages i have have had and only 150EGP... More
