Marsa Alam hotels have their own private beaches exclusively available to hotel guests. Long stretches of natural white sand beaches and a year-round dry and temperate climate make this area an ideal destination for sun seekers and water sports enthusiasts. The waters of the Red Sea are clear and calm for most of the year and are popular for watersports such as scuba-diving and snorkelling, windsurfing, sailing and deep-sea fishing.
Other water sports including water skiing, pedalo hire are available on the doorstep and you can also learn to surf and windsurf. Marsa Alam is reasonably close to the popular Red Sea destinations of Hurghada and Dahab where many international wind and kite surfing competitions are held. Marsa Alam’s hotels can also offer a large choice of other more relaxed and fun water sports, from banana rides to parasailing.
