Welcome to Marsa Alam
Marsa Alam, located on the Red Sea coast 790 km south of Cairo, is a land of contradictions. With hot deserts on one side, and the crystal clear waters of the sea on the other, Marsa Alam is a land of fertility and beauty. No longer the nondescript little fishing village that it once used to be, this remote and pristine little place is fast gaining a reputation as a wonderful tourist destination on the Red Sea Riviera. With its many charms and good value Marsa Alam hotels it is even starting to lure tourists away from the more reputed and established destinations such as Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada.
The palm tree and mangrove studded coastline extends for about a 100 kilometres and it is this unending coastline with its wealth of coral reefs and marine life that has transformed the fortunes of Marsa Alam once again.
