Marsa Alam

Is a town in south-eastern Egypt, located on the western shore of the Red Sea. It is currently seeing fast increasing popularity as a tourist destination and development following the opening of Marsa Alam International Airport in 2003.

Among the most famous beaches around Marsa Alam is the Abu Dabab beach. In Abu Dabab, turtles are a common sight and it is nearly guaranteed that when diving, one will see at least one turtle. For tourists who seek to see something less typical, there is marine wildlife like sea snakes, crocodilefish and octopuses.  Marsa Alam also has some inland attractions, such as the Emerald Mines and the Temple of Seti I at Khanais.  Despite being over 135 miles (217 km) north of the tropical zone, the city experiences a hot desert climate,  with steadier temperatures than places to the north such as Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh, yet Kosseir is steadier and has cooler summers. Marsa Alam, Kosseir and Sharm el-Sheikh have the warmest night temperatures of all other Egyptian cities and resorts. Average maximum temperatures during January typically range from 22 to 25 °C (72 to 77 °F) and in August 33 to 40 °C (91 to 104 °F). The temperature of the Red Sea at this location during the year ranges from 22 to 29 °C (72 to 84 °F).

Marsa Alam the gateway to the South Red Sea and it is currently seeing fast increasing popularity as a tourist destination and development following the opening of Marsa Alam International Airport in 2003 in Port Ghalib.  Marsa Alam International Airport  is an essential ingredient to making the city a perfect place to live, do business or spend a stress-free holiday. It has become very convenient to fly in to Marsa Alam domestically from inside Egypt or internationally from any other country to find full service and help from the professional airport team.   Being the only privately owned and operated international commercial airport in Egypt, we guarantee your full satisfaction. With that much effort put into making it unique, Marsa Alam Airport was successfully negotiated by M.A Al-Kharafi Group of Kuwait with the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority to become the first airport in aviation history operating under a complete BOT system. Granted a period of 40 years, EMAK Marsa Alam for Management and Operation of Airports plans on making a unique and stirring experience for the South Red Sea visitors.

In-the-know divers have been heading to Marsa Alam for years, attracted to the seas that offer up some of Egypt’s best diving just off the rugged coastline. Despite this, the far-flung destination stayed well off the tourism radar for a long time. Now, however, the secret is out. The area is being heavily touted as the Red Sea Riviera’s new tourist drawcard by the Egyptian government, and the last few years have.  seen a construction boom along the coastline. While the town of Marsa Alam itself is a rather nondescript place, which most of the development has passed by, the strip of coast to its north and south has been snapped up by eager developers and is now home to a plethora of resorts and half-built hotels.
