The busy fishing and ferry port Safaga is frequently visited by cruise ships and snorkeling day tours.
Excursions head off to dive the port’s unpolluted waters from long stretches of beach near Tobia Arba'a reefs.
Kite and windsurfing are popular here too, and nature lovers are intrigued by the town’s black sand dunes.
Safaga is 53 kilometers (33 miles) south of Hurghada on the Red Sea coast. It is also known as Port Safaga.
