Marsa Nakari

Hotel Overview

Marsa Nakari is a charming village featuring a sheltered bay just 40 km south of Marsa Alam city, a smaller, quieter and more remote alternative to Marsa Shagra but with all the benefits. A fantastic house reef just minutes from the shore, unlimited diving and peace and tranquillity, this offers the perfect mixture for a perfect dive holiday.

Established over 20 years ago, Marsa Nakari 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.

Marsa Nakari's main appeal is its proximity to the Samadai protectorate (Dolphin House); one of the Red Sea’s most important National Parks. The coral reef system of this off-shore reef and the dolphins that inhabit its lagoon are one of the southern Red Sea’s most popular attractions.

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

At Marsa Nakari, 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.

This unique tour gives divers exclusive access to many outstanding reefs including Elphinstone and Samadi Reefs from this still relatively remote location. Marsa Nakari benefits from an extensive and diverse house reef with hard and soft corals of offshore

Our guests say these villages are the best value and all-round diving experience you will find in the Red Sea.

Marsa Nakari is the smaller and more remote alternative to Marsa Shagra and is suitable for all levels of qualification from non-divers to instructors – there really is something for everyone.

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 Nakari, Marsa Shagra and Wadi Lahami in one trip, spending time at two or even all locations.

Marsa Nakari 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.
