El Quseir is a small, sleepy resort still relatively unaffected by tourism and retaining a charm all of its own.
It is most commonly reached via a scenic two hour drive south from Hurghada, with the vast desert on one side and the Red Sea on the other.
Marine life in El Quseir
The reefs in this area are among the most pristine to be found in the Red Sea as a result of the very strict marine park rules enforced by Subex Dive Center. This resort is also ideal for snorkelling, with some excellent reefs accessible directly from the shore.
A refreshing alternative to some of Egypt's more well known beach resorts, El Quseir is perfect for those who want to combine relaxation and tranquillity with some of the best diving on the Red Sea.
