"A real oasi in the middle of nothing" Marsa al `Alam by PALLINA

Marsa al `Alam Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 107 photos

Don't go to the Red Sea Riviera and think to have visited Egypt, which is something completely different. Anyway it can be a nice gateway from European winter and still relatively cheap. But also Marsa Alam is becoming more and more touristy....

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great coral reef, new and high standard accomodations
  • Cons:Nothing to share with real Egypt
  • In a nutshell:For a cheap injection of sun during winter
  • Last visit to Marsa al `Alam: Apr 2006

    Heelo Pallina, Must have been a very exciting experience in Egypt. We are currently in Turkey, and in some respect our experience is similar... Is that child on the picture yours??!! I would be glad to congratulate!!!
