Southern Red Sea Diving Holidays: An Overview

The Red Sea is simply the best diving closest to the UK with the added advantage of almost guaranteed sunshine, hence the regular influx visitors from around Europe.

Just a few short years ago, rather alarmingly, Hurghada was just a sleepy coastal village and then tourism arrived. The result has been an explosion of hotel building and consequently this former fishing village has morphed into a sort of second rate Torremolinos of the Red Sea.

The diving is really typical Red Sea. Perfect reefs littered with colourful hard and soft corals right into the sunlit shallows, endless Morays and Turtles, gentle drifts and even the rarity of a dolphin dive, all in crystal clear waters. Perhaps the greatest surprise is the house reef at Sahl Hasheesh, not only ideal for learning but teaming with life.
