Skip the ever-popular Abu Dabbab Beach and pay a visit to Honokrab Beach in Wadi el Gamal National Park. A 25-minute drive south of Marsa Alam, these deserted, white sands melt into the shallow, sapphire waters. Here, you can snorkel with an exotic cast of underwater creatures, or spot starfish on the seabed. The beach is a known nesting spot for turtles, too, so be careful not to disturb them. And since you won’t find any bars or restaurants, you’ll want to bring a packed lunch.
