Why you should be diving in Sharm el-Sheikh

Regarded as one of the world’s best diving locations, Sharm el-Sheikh once enjoyed a booming marine tourism industry.

In 2008, numbers were at their peak, with around 100,000 divers certified each year.

But Egypt’s last turbulent decade has impacted heavily on business. Following the revolution in 2011 and the Russian plane explosion in 2015, visitor numbers started to decline. The final blow happened in 2016 when the UK banned flights to the resort town on the Sinai Peninsula.

4,000 Year Old Pyramid Just Opened to the Public in Egypt

One of the most exciting things about Egypt is the fact there’s still so much for archaeologists to explore and uncover – the Great Pyramids are just the beginning of the ancient treasures the country is home to. Take the recent public opening of the Pyramid of Senusret II or Al-Lahun.

The colossal structure can be found southwest of Faiyum, a two hour drive from the capital, Cairo. It was built in the 12th Dynasty by the Pharaoh Senusret II, who ruled between 1897 and 1878 BC.
