What to see in Marsa Alam and its surroundings
You have many options for trips around the Egyptian Marsa Alam. The first attractive tip is diving and snorkelling, which are very popular and sought after in this location. This can be experienced, for example, on the island of Hamata and the small, scattered islands known for their beautiful beaches with white sand, many species of rare birds that live on the island, but of course also for the exciting underwater world. In addition, it is possible to see dolphins, whales, and turtles in the vicinity of Marsa Alam from a boat or directly while diving.
Another source of trips is the vast desert surrounding Marsa Alam. On it you can experience riding quad bikes or observe the beautiful night sky studded with stars, which is not overshadowed by any light smog.
If you are attracted not only by natural but also cultural heritage, you can visit the historical city of Luxor. You can soak up the history in this city, as it was already inhabited 4000 years before our era. It is not for nothing that it is considered the largest open-air museum. The city is built in harmony with the Egyptian religion, in which the sunrise is a symbol of life and birth, and the sunset symbolizes death. That is why temples and buildings are built on the east side, that is, on the east bank of the Nile River. You will also find here the fascinating Valley of the Kings, which is world-famous and is included among the UNESCO monuments. It is a sacred place intended for the final resting place of ancient Egyptian rulers.
