Egypt is considered THE Mecca for diving. The proximity to Europe and the number of shipwrecks from WW2 see thousands of divers descend to egypt for diving. Sharm El Shieks dive sites are considered second to few. It's a brilliant location for using as a stepping stone to dive the excellent Thistlegorm and many more wrecks in the Red Sea. Away from the famous and widely known dive sites of Egypt are many more waiting to be visited. These tend to be coral formations and other sea-worthy sites.
