4.3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
Explore the underwater jungle of coral reefs and colorful marine life at Coral Beach Nature Reserve. This haven for snorkelers and scuba divers features more than 270 species of coral and 650 species of tropical fish--some of which are endemic to the Red Sea. Rent snorkeling equipment and cross a wooden bridge to reach the starting point of a 1,200 m (3,937 ft) long coral reef. From there on, you can follow marked underwater trails along the first coral reef, which is only 3-4 m (13 ft) deep. Further from the shore you will find a sand bar and a 35 m (115 ft) deep wall of corals. The nature reserve features the largest underwater observatory in the Middle East.

  • We have spent two days in a row here and enjoyed our hours here. As a holder of the National Park map (very recommend!), we had no additional costs. The highlight is the access to the reef next to the well-maintained, clean facility with showers and a shop that gives also snorkelling equipment and sold. Two walkways lead to the reef edge where you can snorkel wonderfully along. The application of floating pipe-shaped elongated buoys, where you can always pause during the snorkeling is very well thought out. That was important for our children. The underwater world is terrific, a variety of corals and many larger fish that were seen. An additional safety factor is that the beach is guarded. Chairs and seating are abundant!
