Resort Description

Marsa Shagra is a lively diving village with one of the most beautiful and well-protected house reefs in the Red Sea region.

The coral reef is home to a wide variety of marine species including corals, fish, reef sharks, turtles, and occasionally dolphins.

It is strategically located to reach many beautiful diving sites including the famous Elphinstone Reef and Marsa Abu Dabab. It is a very convenient base for exploring the ancient ruins of civilizations, observing desert wildlife and meeting the Bedouins of the South.

Marsa Shagra offers different accommodation categories; there is something for everyone's taste and budget.

Explore diving around the Marsa Shagra Village

What to see

Expect to encounter dolphins on the way to dive sites by boat and maybe even underwater too. There's a resident manatee at one of the sites and lots of huge turtles to be seen. Crocodilefish are easy to find and pipefish squirm around the reef. While oceanic whitetips and hammerheads grace at Elphinstone, closer to shore you can see whitetips and bowmouth sharks too. Tuna and mackerel hunt along the reef and expect the usual clouds of anthias and swirls of fusiliers too.
