Sharm El Sheikh

All divers have their favourite spot, but there are several others upon which everyone agrees are amongst the very best. If you are a diving enthusiast you definitely want to go on Sharm El Sheikh holidays and see the most beautiful diving destination in Egypt.

Sharm El Sheikh is one the most famous spots in the world. The Red Sea offers a unique underwater landscape, and the clear waters and coral reefs see sharks mingle with parrot fish, rays, butterfly fish, wrasses and red grouper with blue spots. Turtle Bay, Fiasco, Tower and Near Garden are some of the popular places for diving and snorkelling.

The Bahamas

The Bahamas is an archipelago of 700 Caribbean islands scattered in the Atlantic Ocean, featuring white sand beaches. You can dive all year round in the turquoise waters of the islands, and capture beautiful photos of the marine life. San Salvador Island is particularly popular with experienced divers for the different kinds of sharks and sea life.

Palau, Oceania

A myriad of small Micronesian islands topped with green, undulating sea, this is the realm of divers. There are many tropical fish amongst the Second World War wrecks of ships, aircraft, or war material belonging to the Japanese army. It is in this meandering maze of islands that you will find wrasse, sharks, eagle rays, barracudas and jacks.

Cancun, Mexico

With all the diving spots in the Pacific, Mexico competes with the best in the world. The diversity on offer is huge, depending on the level of diving and what you want to see. But most surprising is the museum twenty meters under water. Over 400 sculptures were placed at the bottom of the National Marine Park of Cancun, on the West Coast of Isla Mujeres. The first statues were those of the British artist Jason deCaires Taylor, and the installation will ultimately cover over four hundred square metres. Inaugurated in 2009, the museum is accessible to all with flippers, mask and snorkel.
