Diving Egypt
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Diving

For some of Egypt's best diving, head to the Red Sea shores and places like El Gouna, Hurghada or Safaga on the Arabic coast, or to Sharm el-Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba in the Aqaba Gulf (Sinaï peninsula). Some might turn up their noses at the huge hotels and the artificial aspects of these new cities but the beaches are pleasant and the marine life in the Red Sea amongst the most beautiful in the world. A pair of flippers, a mask and a tuba are enough to observe clownfish, lionfish or moray eels swimming amongst the coral reefs, in a clear warm sea that remains so all year round (especially in Hurghada).
