Marsa Alam is the most southern of Egypt’s resorts, situeted in a virgin stretch of Red Sea coastline near the Tropic of Cancer. Its shimmering beaches and reefs are virtually untouched. But with an ever-growing number of luxury hotels popping up along its 50-kilometre coastline, it’s rising in the popularity stakes.
The best thing to do in here is diving. The coast of Marsa Alam probably is one of Egypt’s most unspoilt reefs. Elphinstone Reef is arguably the best of the lot – a sheer 70-metre coral wall where whitetip reef sharks and giant turtles circle above your head. Also there’s Samadai Reef, a place where wild spinner dolphins congregate, which explains the nickname, Dolphin House.
