Nice beaches?

Nice beaches?

Does anyone know if there is a hotel in Marsa Alam with regular entrance to the sea and possibility of swimming? Or is the water shallow everywhere?

I am with Hiker on this one. Who told you this? There are absolutely many of hotels with beaches and deep water....

There are many available though and totally depends what your hotel needs are.

Thanks for the response:) Well, we went to agencies and we were told that Marsa Alam is great for snorkeling but entrance to the water is shallow and not convenient for regular swimming. After looking at more hotels we noticed the same, the most have reefs where you can jump in from.

You need to ask around more as the agencies are wrong. Yes there are many with Jettys to deeper water but easy to get in and out from.

There also many with deep water from the beach also.

I would not listen to agencies too much at all. If you choose some hotels then many can give you answers as to what water they have from the Shoreline.

You do not need deep water to Snorkel also a consideration as meaning the water is not shallow at shoreline and suits many snorkelling abilities.
