Red Sea Dive Holiday. Marsa Shagra Eco Village
Special Price of £810 for the first eleven to book.
Where in the Red Sea will we be going?
Given the popularity of our previous trips to this unspoilt area, we have decided to return to the Southern Red Sea and stay in Marsa Shagra Eco-Village. Marsa Shagra is the largest of the Eco-Villages, located just 40kmsouth of Marsa Alam airport. Divers will stay in luxurious beach safari tents, situated opposite the world famous Elphinstone reef.
The Southern Eco-Villages are the brainchild of Hossam Helmy and the 20 years’ pioneering from his Red Sea Dive Safari team. The Eco-Villages and the pristine diving that they offer give visitors unsurpassed access to the reef oceanography of the Egyptian coastline between Safaga and Sudan.

What kind of diving is it?
Marsa Shagra benefits from fantastic housereefs with hard and soft corals of offshore quality. These reefs can be accessed from the shore or by a short zodiac ride. Underwater photographers will be in heaven! Unlimited diving on these house reefs is available to all guests of the camp.
Desert trucks leave the camp twice daily (one in the morning and one after lunch) to explore the sharms, marsas and reef walls along the coral coast. Enjoy over 150km of coral fringe reef, from 8m coral gardens to 60m drop offs, pitted caves, elaborate tunnels and a huge diversity of marine life to match.
Offshore boat diving day trips can be arranged for a very reasonable price on site and will visit such diving meccas as Elphinstone reef. For example, a trip to Elphinstone Reef will cost approx €20 per dive.
