    Beautiful camel ride on the beach in Marsa Alam
    Besides the wonderful snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities to see some of the best secrets of the Red Sea such as the amazing coral reefs and turtles you can also get a chance to ride camels and horses on the beach. If you come to Abu Dabbab beach in Marsa Alam, ask for Ibrahim and Shaaban to get the best customer experience ever in riding a camel on the beach. They really exemplified the importance of customer satisfaction and appreciation.
    Thank you very much for your feedback and recommendation. This is the highest award for us to hear that the time spent on the Abu Dabbab beach left you only an unforgettable experience. We will be glad to see you again! Best regards Abu Dabbab Beach team.

    Best beach in Marsa Alam
    It was a great experience we had so much fun. The coral reefs were majestic and very colorful and the water was crystal clear and there were many rare species of fish swimming around us. Furthermore the staff were very helpful and friendly. The Beach is very clean and full of magnificent sea shells. Definitely we will come back for a second visit. ❤️

We went on a TUI half day excursion with Travco who are the TUI local partners.
They were excellent and I would thoroughly recommend them - they kept in contact about the arrangements for the trip and did everything they said they would.
The guide at Abu Dabbab beach was amazing - my husband struggled to swim very far so the guide towed him along using the rubber ring that was attached to him.
The sunbeds are very comfortable and were included in the price of our trip.
The coral reef is, I would say, second to none - clarity and visibility in the water was incredible, and we could have stayed there all day. We were able to swim with a turtle, thanks to our guide who didn't give up until he found one! And the fish on the reef are just mind blowing, it's an aquatic Piccadilly Circus!
We fully intend on coming back to Marsa Alam, and this will always be something we will include when we are here.

We dived here and saw Turtles and beautiful reefs. A lovely beach and dive site. Very unspoiled. The fish are plentiful and whether you swim, snorkel or dive it’s a beautiful place to be.

During the day there are several large waves of tourists. If you don't have your own fins - rent them. It is a strenuous and long swim.
Two shallow reefs. If there are any turtles here, they are probably only after the tourists leave - they are spooked. I only saw a turtle at the Amarina Queen Resort. The access to the sea is gradual, on the sand. Prices in restaurants are acceptable.

We stayed at a nearby hotel and walked, when we arrived they banned us from bathing and snorkeling because we didn't belong to the hotel and to do so we had to pay €15 each. we feel discriminated.

Thanks for your feedback. We would like to point out that Abu Dabbab Beach is not a public beach. Only guests of the three hotels located in Abu Dabbab Bay have access to the beach, otherwise guests from other hotels in Marsa Alam must pay a beach entrance fee of 15 euros. If the security at the gate stopped you and asked you to pay for the ticket, then you were not a guest of the hotel, which has free access to the beach, which is recognized by the bracelets. Thanks for understanding. Sincerely Abu Dabbab Beach team.

Very expensive for what you get. Cost 510 egyptian to get in and be hassled by the locals.

The reefs are not special at all compared to the surrounding area and there was no sea grass so there were no turtles or dugongs on either side of the bay.

Amazing place. There you will find everything you need (amazing beach; amazing sea; amazing reef; tarta). If you want to try an amazing food try the Flouka Bar where seafood is something special to taste.
