Diving Spot #2: Red Sea, Egypt

But the Red Sea in Egypt is quickly becoming a top destination for divers from all over the world. And it’s easy to see why.

The Red Sea is home to some of the most beautiful and diverse marine life on the planet. From vibrant corals to rare fish, there’s something for everyone to see underwater.

1. The Blue Hole

But what makes it so popular with divers is the abundance of marine life that surrounds it. From colourful coral to sharks and rays, the Blue Hole is teeming with life. It’s also one of the best places to see the famous Red Sea “Nemo”.

2. The Brothers Islands

Located about 60 miles off the coast of Egypt, the Brothers Islands are two uninhabited volcanic islands that offer some of the best diving in the Red Sea.
