It is Ana amazing place where nature dominates the imagination Great scuba and snorkeling However it is extremely crowded, noisy and dirty Worth a trip but lower expectations. Some places o the way to the blue hole are quieter and almost as rich underwater

It was stunning experience, a lot of corals, nice marine park, but not much fishes. Snorkeling above whole- nothing special, because there is very dark, but impression very good. A lot of people, everybody is screaming, wandering, a little bit of chaos

Yes, they say it is dangerous and... there were some incidents, (near the border with Israel) indeed, but as far as I know, none of them at the sea side. In all the touristic areas there are a lot of police and military... More
