Marsa Alam is a village with a small harbor and stone quay. It is the ideal base for a fishing holiday. The Dokki Shooting Club has a resthouse here and can arrange deep sea fishing trips. Sharks, lobsters, turtles and muraena are among the catches. There are some fine offshore coral reefs and good diving facilities, for which the area has become well known in the last few years. A nature reserve stretches from here to Gebel Elba in the south. In recent years, Marsa Alam has seen a splurge of development. There are now many three and four star resorts along the beach, with five star facilities soon to open. I will also have the largest marina in the Middle East, a golf course, and much more.
