Marsa Alam or Shams Alam

by davestorey

Any opinions on Marsa Alam versus Shams Alam would be appreciated.

Do we have to book Half Board or are there eating places close to the resort hotels?

TIA

Marsa Allam is a town/ area in South East Egypt, Shams Allam is a resort in it... no comparison between both

I am a diver and have heard that Marsa Alam and Shams Alam are fantastic (for diving), my partner is a non diver so would like to know what facilities are available............

We have been to Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada a number of times so comparisons would be appreciated.

I agree with Mongy.

Shams Alam is just a resort in Marsa Alam, which is about 300km south of Hurgada. Great diving, snorkeling, and other aqua sports, but I think it is still a very virgin and under-developed place with no many modern-world activities like night life and restaurants around. Hotels are great, though.

So the bottom line is that you book full-board accommodation rather than half-board, or you'll starve to death!! LOL
