Safaga Snorkeling

The 2nd most popular snorkel dive spot in Egypt.

South of Hurghada along the Red Sea, the snorkeling off Safaga in Soma Bay is known for its coral reefs, clownfish, and lionfish. A good place to access is via the pier from the Sheraton Resort. The reef is about 100m or more offshore.

Safaga is located south of the popular Sharm el Sheik on the Sinai Peninsula. To reach the snorkeling in the Red Sea by air, the international travelers will need to fly into Cairo. From Cairo, the Egyptian national airline, Egyptair, operates all domestic flights in Egypt and serves 11 major airports: Abu Simbel, Alexandria, Assiut, Aswan, Cairo, Hurghada, Luxor, Marsa Alam, Marsa Matruh, Sharm el-Sheikh, and Taba.

Overall, Safaga is the 2nd most popular snorkel dive spot of all 4 snorkeling dives in Egypt.
