About 220 km south of Hurghada, Marsa Alam is among the fastest growing holiday resorts on the Red Sea Riviera, and is popular with wind surfers, scuba divers, snorkellers and beach loving sunseekers lucky enough to have already discovered Marsa Alam’s tranquility and beauty. Fringed with palm trees and mangroves, this is a real life tropical paradise, and an ideal base for further exploration.
Like some other resorts on the Riviera, Marsa Alam was once a small fishing village, and the addition of Marsa Alam International Airport to the area allowed the town to enter into the realm of tourism, and since then the area has become one of Egypt’s secret treasures, especially among divers and snorkelers looking for a new destination off the beaten track.
