Hot sunny days and great diving are synonymous with a diving holiday in the Red Sea but if you are searching for somewhere peaceful, head to the southern area, away from the bustle of the resorts in the north. Utopia Beach Club at El Quesir is perfectly situated in Egypt’s Southern Red Sea, for both spectacular house reef diving and visiting world-famous reefs nearby.
Utopia has one of the best house reefs in the southern area, teeming with life, conveniently close and big enough to explore countless times. The easy-going conditions make the diving suitable for all experience levels. Step into the water just 80 metres away from the dive centre and within a few minutes you’ll be at the outside reef and diving amongst large coral blocks. Expect encounters with eagle rays, turtles, dolphins, tuna and more colourful reef fish than you can count. A free pick-up service enables divers to access the reef from the northern entry points while the zodiacs can drop divers into the water further along the reef to explore different areas including canyons that can be dived with our guides.
If you can tear yourself away from the beauty and convenience of the house reef, join our daily dive boat or bus to explore other dive sites nearby.
Top 3 dive sites from Utopia:
- Shaab Kenz with zodiac: start in the canyon before exploring a beautiful plateau full of fish and striking soft corals.
- Sheik Malik by bus: a sandy bay with a small reef and lush sea grass meadow attracting big turtles and a dugong.
- Elphinstone Reef by bus & speedboat: a bucket list dive site in the Red Sea that comes with a high chance of encountering Oceanic White Tip sharks (Carcharhinus longimanus) as well as other pelagics.
See you at Utopia soon!
