What Makes the Red Sea Special | Scuba Diving Blog

A northerly tongue of the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea is a 2,000km long stretch of water surrounded by Egypt to the north, Egypt and Sudan to the west, and Saudi Arabia to the east. Much of the diving in the Red Sea is in the northern reaches around the Sinai Peninsula, mainly from the gateway resorts of Sharm El Sheikh and Hurgada, however, a good number of liveaboards run itineraries further south to offshore reefs and pinnacles.
