Egypt: The Red Sea: Beautiful Sea Life

There are so many beautiful fish and corals in the Red Sea.

We have photographed in Sharm el-Sheikh, on the Sinai Peninsula, and in Port Ghalib. We think the coral reefs in Port Ghalib are the best. I have though heard that a legendary dive location is Ras Mohammed in Sharm el-Sheikh. Maybe we get to go there one day.

Have a look at these gorgeous fish:

Butterflyfish are among the most typical and colorful reef fish. In most species of Butterflyfish, once couples are formed they remain together for many years or forever.

Angelfish is characterized by the dominance of a male. The male defends a territory up to 1.000 square meters!

Pufferfish get their name from the ability to puff themselves up, when threatened.

Here is a new photo of one of my favourites: Exquisite Butterflyfish:

The Red Sea is so amazing! The fish, the corals, the colors… they create a beautiful world, which is different every time you go below the surface.

I recommend warmly to rent or buy a mask and a snorkel. When you see the Red Sea sea life, you will fall in love with it.

Even the small fish, like Anthias and Half-and-Half Chromis will surprise you with their elegance and beauty.

One of my favorite corals is the Raspberry coral, which get its name of the fabulous red color.

The sea life of the Red Sea on the coast of Egypt is especially beautiful.

We prefer to travel to Egypt in November, as the temperature is not too mild nor too hot. February-March could be another great time for us from the Nordics. People who are used to hot weather would enjoy the months before November as well as the months after April.
