Marsa Shagra

Hotel Overview

The ultimate diving adventure! Enjoy the relaxed, laid back atmosphere of Marsa Shagra, a unique location the likes of which you will not find anywhere else in the world. Marsa Shagra offers an unlimited diving concept where you can dive as much, or as little as you like.

Established over 20 years ago, Marsa Shagra was discovered by Hossam Helmy and his Red Sea Diving Safari team whilst exploring the fringe reef on the Egyptian coastline between Safaga and Sudan.

One of three natural bays, which also include Marsa Nakari Village and Wadi Lahami Village, these essentially put the region of Marsa Alam on the map.

At Marsa Shagra, Hossam has endeavoured to promote sustainable tourism along with eco diving and his educational diving programmes are a continuation of his desire to ensure the long term future of this area.

As well as unlimited access to Marsa Shagra's extensive and diverse house reef, this unique tour gives divers exclusive access to many other outstanding reefs including Elphinstone, Dolphin House Reef (Samadai) and Abu Dabbab, where if you are lucky you might spot the elusive Dugong.

Our guests say these villages are the best value and all-round diving experience you will find in the Red Sea. With the hyperbaric chamber and medical centre on site it is a perfect location for divers.

Marsa Shagra is the larger of the villages and is suitable for all levels of qualification from non divers to instructors – there really is something for everyone. Now we can also offer Technical Diving Courses at Marsa Shagra.

All of the Oonasdivers team have extensive knowledge of all three villages and will be able to help you decide which of these stunning villages best suits you.

It is also possible to combine Marsa Shagra, Marsa Nakari and Wadi Lahami in one trip, spending time at two or even all locations.

Marsa Shagra Village is a unique concept, superbly located to provide the very best diving in this southern area. As a guest you are completely free to dive at leisure and relax in one of the most peaceful of environments on the planet.
