Marsa Alam, an unknown fishing village on the Red Sea, has become Egypt's latest and most modern resort destination. The village is located in the south of Egypt, 271 kilometres south of Hurghada. Since 2011, Marsa Alam is accessible through Marsa Alam International Airport. If you are looking for tranquillity, luxury, beautiful beaches and great diving opportunities, then Marsa Alam is the right place to be.
Marsa Alam was discovered by divers during the 1980s and is still a favourite diving spot because of the large numbers of dolphins, turtles, and even manatees. Enjoy the ideal desert climate with pleasant temperatures and plenty of sunshine year-round. Go into the warm waters of the Red Sea and see the beautiful, untouched coral reefs.
Points of interest
There is plenty of nature besides the underwater world in Marsa Alam, such as the colourful valley with the steep walls of the Coloured Canyon. Go on an adventure with one of several excursions to nearby relics of the pharaonic period of Egypt. Make sure to take an excursion to Wadi-el-Gamal (National Park) and view the beautiful landscapes, the desert area, the canyons, and the oasis.
Tranquillity and luxury
Hotels in Marsa Alam all have private beaches that offer the opportunity to relax and unwind. An ideal place for a relaxing week's holiday.
