View the coastal panorama at Marsa Shoona Bay, a portion of calm, sheltered waters covering a coral reef. A palm-lined stretch of golden sand provides good swimming opportunities while abundant marine life makes snorkeling and diving popular here. See lionfish, moray eels, tetraodons, green sea turtles, and giant crabs and, if you're lucky, dolphins or a dugong. Take a camel ride on the shore and soak in the scenery.

  • To see, avoiding days of rough seas due to the sediment in suspension. Too bad for the cold water that penalizes a little too much, in May with a damp 5 mm.

  • You can reach the Bay by car as well as by boat. Colorful reef with pushfish, a lot of fire-fish, moray eels and so many other reef fish. Recommended for divers and snorkelers

  • Despite the sea the wind we managed to get to this bay and we were greeted while we were still in the boat from a sweet dugong that made changes in the water as to greet us.. We went down in two rounds with a dinghy driving for a half an hour the very beautiful reef full of fish where I had the pleasure to see Fish surgeon fishes butterfly clownfish and so many others and in the midst of colorful corals!
