    There are plenty of isolated beaches not frequented by hordes of people, therefore non-Saudi women can sunbathe and scuba dive in peace, the coast guards are very tolerant and protective. The sunsets over the Red Sea are spectacular. Usually a convoy of friends or aquaintances spend a weekend at the beach with kites, music blaring, campsite fires and bar-b-ques going well into the wee hours. An eclectic mix is usually the go with expats of all nationalities; usually they are beach or diving enthusiasts and its like Club Med without any commercialism.
