Marsa Alam, Egypt

 
The small village of Marsa Alam is one of Egypt's top sea and sun destinations. Not only does this stretch of Red Sea Coast boast sparkling seas it has the look and feel of a tropical paradise - coral reefs, sandy beaches, mangroves and palm trees. What's more, the southern dive sites host a whole range of sea life and are, as of yet, unspoiled. Spot tropical fish. See sharks and rays. Swim with dolphins. Watch green turtles and even dugongs. The one drawback? There's no movida on this strip of sand. There are no restaurants, outside of the hotels, and no markets or village shops. And... Read More even if one or two were built they would likely be distant. The resorts and dive camps at Marsa Alam are scattered north and south along the coast and many are a considerable distance - 50 kilometers or more - from the main village.

Red Sea Desert Adventures, run by a Dutch geologist and Austrian adventurer, offers camel treks, hiking trips and jeep safaris in Egypt's Eastern Desert. Multi-day excursions, ranging in length from 3 to 10 days, depart from Hurghada and Marsa Alam. Day trips depart from Marsa Alam only. One multi-day jeep safari follows the roman caravan route from the Red Sea to the Nile and includes the Roman stone quarries and fortifications of Mons Porphyrites and Mons Claudianus. A popular day trip explores Wadi el Gemal National Park and, in addition to ancient mine works and Roman caravan stations, a trek in this southerly valley offers a chance to sight gazelles. While none of the desert excursions are strenuous they are geared to folks with an interest in archaeology and nature. Accommodation on all multi-day excursions is in simple tents. A reduced rate is available for children under 12. Custom tours are possible.
