Sharm El Luli

Red Sea Coast

In the middle of the Wadi Gimal Protectorate, 60km south of Marsa Alam, lies a pristine sand beach with azure water and excellent coral and fish viewing. Because it is located inside a national park, Sharm El Luli has no development at all – no hotels, restaurants or shops and no facilities. Most of the very few visitors come for the day, bring what they need and take everything away when they leave.
