Marsa Shagra
Marsa Shagra is a bustling seaside village and definitely the most well-known of our Marsa Alam destinations. It is our gateway to the south boasting one of the most beautiful house reefs in the Red Sea region. Whether you are a diver or just enjoy snorkeling, our house reef features an abundance of marine life including a variety of coral & fishes, reef sharks, turtles, and sometimes even dolphins!

Prepare to expand your knowledge and awareness of the underwater world, explore ancient ruins of long gone civilizations and learn about the long history of the Red Sea region. Take a trek through the desert to observe amazing wildlife and the Bedouins of the south. Meditate under the mutating colors of the setting sun or stargaze under a moonless night. Reinvigorate your body with a soothing massage and enjoy a therapeutic oxygen session right on the beach. If you've never visited the southern Red Sea, Marsa Shagra is definitely the place to begin.

The journey
In the first place, we always choose the direct flight down to Marsa Alam Airport, whenever possible. From Stockhom / Arlanda Airport we fly during Autumn and Spring with direct flights to Marsa Alam. It also works quite smoothly to fly to Hurghada and then with scheduled car transfer to Marsa Alam or even further south. From Copenhagen and Gothenburg we often fly via Hurghada Airport. Transfer from Hurghada to Marsa Shagra takes approx. 4 hours.
