Went to El Fanar beach October 2015, reef crystal clear and amazing fish right off jetty, food and drink ok and reasonably priced, beautiful sunsets worth a visit £5 to get in including towels and a bottle of water.

I've visited El Fanar on a couple of occasions. Both time it was to visit the restaurant that is situated there. What a beautiful location overlooking the Red Sea. This ideal for a romantic meal for 2.
