Holidays to Marsa Alam
The main draw to this small town is the diving. A number of boats are moored just off shore while hotels have popped up providing entertainment between trips to the dive sites. The rugged coastline makes this perfect for divers of all skills. In the centre is the town, which is now flanked to the north and south by modern developments providing everything a modern traveller could want. It’s also used as a base to explore the Eastern Desert.
