The Worlds Best Scuba Diving - Sharm El Sheikh


Sharm El Sheikh with the nearby Ras Mohammed National Park is one of the world’s most famous scuba diving destinations. The region is in fact a series of bays with innumerable extraordinary coral reefs. It is located on the east shore at the southernmost tip of the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula.

Because of its geographic position, the peninsula is a privileged area claims Sinainet.com.eg. This is due to the powerful streams and currents that bring large quantities of plankton and other food to these waters. This in turn gives rise to an extraordinary growth of stony and soft corals and attracts large schools of both reef and pelagic marine fauna. "Given the great abundance of food, barracuda, jackfish, tuna and sharks swarm in these waters, offering divers the chance to make extremely interesting and exciting dives."
