    Lion fish

    What can I say about snorkelling in the Gulf of Aqaba! Clear waters, coral reefs just off the shore about 5 mins walk from the Hilton Coral beach and a warm sea. From someone who grew up by the North Sea on the East coast of Scotland there is no comparison. The variety of fish was amazing too and we saw lots of different species. The highlight was seeing a lionfish swimming along - although we gave it a wide berth! For those who don't like snorkelling the Hilton Coral pier is lit up at night and one night we counted over 30 lion fish swimming around. We also say a squid, cuttle fish and a lone barracuda among others.

    Equipment: We took our own snorkelling equipment but the hotel supplied vouchers to rent them from the beach watersports centre. However, we snorkelled almost every day we were there, so it was good we had our own.

    This part of the world is seen as one of the world's best for diving and snorkelling. It is quite amazing - just a couple of metres off the coast, the coral and fish to be seen just take your breath away. (And the sea is calm enough for snorkelling for all ages!)
