for those complaining about the rocks and corals on the way in: try accessing it from El Fanar or Cuba Lounge. Its much easier and you have a comfortable beachlounge to come back to. Open for anyone (public)

Stunningly beautiful! Spent as much time as possible looking for new types of fish. We weren't disappointed.
Well worth staying at the Jaz Fanara Resort, to have unlimited access to the reef

The craggy rocks are not ideal for sunbathers. It has rocks, this beach which makes me to tell everyone to be careful in this reef beach.

As our main reason for choosing the Jaz Fanara hotel on Ras Um Sid bay was the house reef just off the beach, we were thrilled to discover it was even better than we had hoped. Every day we discovered a new species of fish and thank goodness we had invested in a Collins Coral Reef guide on the Red Sea fishes so they could be identified. We snorkeled from the pier on the left of the Ras Um Sid bay to the farthest pier on the right over a few days. We came out of the water just near the Farsha cafe on one adventure, but were very sad to see piles of plastic bottles and plastic debris floating on the sea and on the beach. It seemed as though it had come from the trip boats 20 ++ that pile into the bay daily, to bring there guest's to snorkel. Shame on them for allowing such pollution,don't they understand that if the reef is destroyed they won't have any livelihood, as no one wants to snorkel on a dead reef.

sharm El SHeikh The majority of accommodations in Sharm are major Western chain hotels, which, in this case, isn’t such a bad thing when you consider that many of these hotels are incredibly luxurious and feature some of the best services you will find anywhere. There are local hotels and even a smattering of bed and breakfasts here, but if you are a first time visitor here, you might want to stick with the names you know until you get to know the lay of the land.

Go to ElFanar Beach, Original est. 1992 (right entyway when you reach the parking lot) you will have direct access to the jetty from that beach and the Italian Restaurant Nausicaa serves a fantastic Pizza (the best in Sharm El Sheikh).

Amazing to snorkel. I stayed at faraana reef hotel in january and am booked to stay at reef oasis hotel next year booked these places specifically as I'd read it was good for snorkelling and it was. The second u put your feet in the water there are tons of coloured fish everywhere amazing the reef comes at you quick at the sides then drops over there are llatoons that you can walk out over there reff though the water underneath is so clear. There are fossils all in the sand cant wait to go back
