Al Qusayr is situated 100km North or Marsa Alam and has a long history as one of the most important ports on the Red Sea and is mentioned in the ancient Egyptian stories and mythology. Today, it has become a quiet resort with sandy beaches, surrounded by coral reefs and clear blue waters.
Al Quseir has a very attractive and diverse underwater life and the fair number of dive centres in the few hotels make it a great destination for your scuba vacation. In addition, the visibility is quite good on calm days, reaching about twenty metres.
Some international flights now go directly to Al Quseir, otherwise fly to Cairo and then take an internal flight or go overland by bus or car.
