Egypt's Red Sea coast runs from the Gulf of Suez to the Sudanese border. A virtual paradise, the Red Sea is recognized as the best dive site in the world. The beautiful desert, a variety of exotic species of tropical reef fish and unique coral formations add to the charm of the Red Sea. The landscape here is amazing, but what has made this region famous is the richness of its underwater life. The temperature of the waters in the Red Sea is warm enough to snorkel all year round. If you are interested in scuba diving, visit Marsa Alam, 200 kilometres north of Egypt's border with Sudan. Hurghada is the foremost tourist resort on the Red Sea coast and an international centre for aquatic sports. You can indulge in windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing, swimming, diving, and snorkelling in the Red Sea. The unique underwater gardens offshore are some of the finest in the world.
