#4 of 6 in Beaches in Marsa Alam
Also known as the Oriental Bay, Gebel El Rosas attracts underwater enthusiasts with its reef and colorful marine creatures. Its sandy entrance, well-protected from strong winds, offers safe diving and snorkeling opportunities year-round. Sloping down 40 m (131 ft) deep underwater, the reef offers picturesque coral landscapes, sea-anemone gardens, and a series of caverns.
