Marsa Alam Egypt

As you drive from Marsa Alam airport to your hotel, and gaze out at the mountains and vast expanse of Sahara on one side and the sparkling blue waters of the Red Sea on the other, you could be forgiven for thinking that Marsa Alam offered a simple choice between diving or relaxing by the beach or pool. However, you can do far more Get close to one of the world's most intelligent and playful creatures - we recommend a day trip to the not so well known Sataya Reef - not only does this rival Dolphin House as one of the great wonders of the natural world as a habitat for the famously playful spinner dolphins but you are a lot less likely to find the area overcrowded. It's all to easy to forget that you are only a few hours drive from perhaps the most famous capital of the ancient world - Thebes - or Luxor as it has become known in more recent times. If you are an early riser ( or even better if you can afford a two day trip ) then this excursion can be well worth the effort. Now it's time for a day shopping in the historic city of El Quseir with its' Ottoman fort and many small shops and bazars ? It's just a short drive away ( 20 minutes to an hour and a half depending on where in the Marsa Alam area your hotel is. ) Steven's Limousine Service organizes return trips for just 20 euros per person leaving your hotel after lunch and returning after sunset.
