<p>Hundreds of miles of coral, a wealth of sea life, and crystal-clear waters earn Egypt's Red Sea Coast recognition as one of the planet's best dive destinations. The warm water, great visibility, and availability of excellent instructors make this a good spot to learn how to dive. Most scuba activity here is based out of <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/egypt/the-sinai-peninsula-and-red-sea-coast/dahab/">Dahab</a>, <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/egypt/the-sinai-peninsula-and-red-sea-coast/hurghada/">Hurghada</a>, <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/egypt/the-sinai-peninsula-and-red-sea-coast/marsa-alam/">Marsa Alam</a>, Safaga, and <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/egypt/the-sinai-peninsula-and-red-sea-coast/sharm-el-sheikh/">Sharm El-Sheikh</a>.</p> <p><strong>Best Places to Dive:</strong> <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/egypt/the-sinai-peninsula-and-red-sea-coast/dahab/activities_h2269678_diving.html">The Blue Hole</a>, El Minya, <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/egypt/the-sinai-peninsula-and-red-sea-coast/hurghada/activities_h2269707_diving.html">Small Giftun Island</a>, <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/egypt/the-sinai-peninsula-and-red-sea-coast/sharm-el-sheikh/activities_h2269660_diving.html">Jackson Reed (Tiran Strait)</a>, <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/africa-and-middle-east/egypt/the-sinai-peninsula-and-red-sea-coast/sharm-el-sheikh/activities_h2269660_diving.html">SS <em>Thistlegorm </em>(Ras Muhammed National Park)</a></p> <p><strong>When to Go: </strong>Warm water (75 to 82 degrees) means the diving is good here year-round. Winter is the most popular time to visit the Red Sea, as the air temperature cools down.</p> <p> <strong>Other Things to Do:</strong> climb Mount Sinai, dance the night away in Sharm El-Sheikh, tour Saint Catherine's Monastery </p>
