Tala Bay is a perfect vacation place in Southern Jordan. The sandy beach is perfect for sun bathing and the Red Sea offers a unique possibility to photograph exotic fish species. If you prefer swimming pools instead of the sea, you find many nice pools to swim or relax in.

The food is fabulous in Jordan, just like in Egypt. Baba ganoush, hummus, tabbouleh, fried fish, tasty desserts and the hot chili stuffed olives…
We love the Red Sea. In Tala Bay we had some great adventures in the sea. We got many exciting photos of the sea life.
The Arabian Boxfish:
The Black Peacock Lionfish:
Some funny looking corals:
We experienced also some adventure in the air. When I came to the surface to take a break from photographing the fish, I heard and felt a rumbling noise. I looked around. From the boarder in the south, where Jordan and Saudi Arabia meet, a huge helicopter flew towards a ship nearby.
The helicopter approached the ship and commandos jumped with ropes from the helicopter to the ship.
My husband and I did not know what was going on. Was this a training session, a show for the tourists… or? Everything happened very fast. I did not have time to switch the camera from underwater mode to normal mode, but I got a few good photos.
You can experience many things on holidays 😉
I love the adventures below surface. Watching and photographing the beautiful and interesting fish. Here is a Flagtail Halfmoon Triggerfish:
Stay tuned! More stories to come and many photos of the sea life in the Red Sea 🙂
