Equinox Beach Resort guests are very thrilled about the “stunning dives” and the “great beaches”. With names as Elphinstone and Dolphin House this area of Marsa Alam is one of the top diving sites of Egypt.
Even, Abu Dabbab, neighbouring Equinox Beach Resort, is one of the few places in the world where you can dive and swim with the endangered dugong “sea cow”. There are two semi-permanent residents who are known by the nicknames of Dennis and Dougal, two of only seven currently known to exist along the entire Egyptian Red Sea Coast. And as if that isn’t enough the bay is also host to giant sea turtles for whom the shallow waters serve as an invaluable nesting site. The bay has colourful reefs as well, a myriad of beautiful fish, a small shipwreck and a swim-through canyon with underwater caves.
There’s of course a dive center at the beach of the resort. The dive center caters for experienced divers and beginners alike. Dive and snorkel equipment can be rented in the dive center. Lessons and excursions are also available.
Equinox Beach Resort is also well suited for families as it has one of the few beaches in the Marsa Alam area where you can wade directly into the sea. The beach is 1,3 km long, 400 meter of which is a sandy bay, and has umbrellas, wind brakers / sun shades and a jetty at the far end. The jetty also serves as a full licensed marina. The dive boats can leave directly from our marina so that long bus transfers are totally avoided.
The 230 meter long jetty leads on to a submerged reef full of coral and fish of all kinds and turtles. The beach is protected in a bay and behind a reef so it is still not a problem for the kids to swim. The coral reef is just a few metres from the beach and pretty close to the jetty, so that even the smallest child can safely go to see the fish.
The resort has two large and well designed swimming pools, both with a children’s swimming area. Enjoy the vast terraces, fully equipped with sunbeds, parasols and towels (all free of charge) and where you can fully enjoy amazing views over the Red Sea.
