Marsa Alam

Marsa Alam ©
The opening of an international airport and subsequent development of hotels and resorts boosted tourism in Marsa Alam, a town on Egypt's Red Sea coast known for its world-class diving spots.
Step out of the city life by going to Elphinstone Reef and El Qulan Mangrove Forest. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Emperor Divers Marsa Alam and Abu Dabbab Beach. There's still lots to do: see the vivid underwater world at Sataya Reef, get engrossed in the history at Astronomy Center, and don't miss a visit to Shaab Marsa Alam.

You can plan Marsa Alam trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Sao Paulo, Brazil to Marsa Alam is an approximately 26-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Sao Paulo to Marsa Alam due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit warmer weather when traveling from Sao Paulo in April: highs in Marsa Alam hover around °C, while lows dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Dahab.
