Beaches in EgyptEdit This
The beaches in Egypt are very pleasant with warm clear waters and sandy shores. Egypt has some of the best beaches in the World with fantastic diving locations which are also ideal for snorkelling. There are a wide variety of water sports, deep sea fishing, parasailing etc.
The marine life is rich and varied with lots of bright colored fish and wonderful corals hundreds of years old.
I strongly recommend visiting Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada on the Red Sea. Or for a more chilled out option and some great diving, head to Dahab (1 hour north of Sharm).
You could also have a wonderful time at the "North Shore" beaches on the Mediterranean, west of Alexandra, check out a place called "Marina" or "Porto Marina".

No one said it was safe to go back in the water – and no one, absolutely no one, was taking any chances.
The sparkling Red Sea off Sharm el-Sheikh, in Egypt, home to more than 1,000 species of exotic fish, spectacular corals and a worldwide magnet for diving enthusiasts, lay undisturbed today in the aftermath of this week's shark attacks.
