Lahami Bay recommended for snorkeling photography more than a holiday destinaton

coral garden in Lahami Bay
Lahami Bay - might not be the ideal overall holiday place but it ticks most (all?) boxes for snorkelling photography.

Visibility very good, unless windy,   Access - just wander in off beach.   Excellent coral and good variety and abundance of fish.

Onshore can disappoint
- self-contained, isolated, large resort - mainly couples - little nightlife.
Other niggles - mosquitoes, dysentery and no other English.

a typical seascape
Sharm El Sheik - ticks most boxes for snorkelling and underwater photography.

Visibility usually very good.   Access is easy, wander in off beach or more usually, hotel pontoon. Good coral and fish.

Choose hotel carefully as some resorts are less good than the sea.
