Diving Roots Red Sea Part Two – The Local Reefs (Watch Video)


There’s something so enigmatic about shore diving – climbing into your kit on the beach and wading in to start a new adventure is something that is so appealing about scuba diving.

In this video we highlight three of the local shore dives available while staying at Roots Red Sea, with all three offering something different.

Both El Makluf and Serib Kabir are a short drive along the coast from Roots, and both transform you into an other-worldly place. Whether it be the excitement of dropping down into the reef floor into a cavern that wouldn’t be out of place from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, or witnessing Mother Nature at her best with coral stacks the size of houses that shimmer in the sunlight. Both of these sites are our favourites, and are both at the top of our list whenever we return to Roots Red Sea.

If it’s turtles you want, and are happy to venture a little further afield, the the giant green turtles at Abu Dabab are an absolute must for you! These graceful giants are peaceful, tranquil and more than happy to share some bottom time with you. Take a look…
