Marsa Alam

Marsa Alam: A gem sparkles on the Red Sea Riviera On the western shore of the Red Sea, Marsa Alam is a paradise for snorkelers and scuba divers ready to plunge into its clear, turquoise waters and swim with an amazing variety of marine life. Dolphins, turtles, clown fish and octopuses wend their way around coral reefs in a protected natural reserve from Madinat Coraya to Gebel Elba. Elphinstone Reef, Fury Shoal and Shaab Samadai (“Dolphin House”) are magnets for underwater explorers, while endless stretches of beaches beckon for those wishing to relax on dry land. Inland, at the southern end of Egypt’s Eastern Desert, mountains once promised treasures like gold and emeralds to the Ancient Egyptians and Romans who mined the hills. In the Red Sea mountains, visit the Temple of Seti I at Khanais: the limestone structure, cut into the rock face, honours the 19th dynasty pharaoh, son of Ramses I and father of the legendary Ramses II. The monastery of St. Anthony, founded when he retreated from worldly affairs in Jebel Al-Jalalah Al-Quibliya over 16 centuries ago, and the nearby monastery of his pupil St. Paul, feature icons and murals depicting the faith of these holy men.
