A little closer to Sharm el-Sheikh, around 30km to the north of the bustling resort, is Nabq, where the coral reefs stretch along the length of the coast where the desert meets the sea. A protected marine reserve has been established here since 1992, in order to protect the coral reefs and the mangrove fringe which extends along the shoreline. The reserve also serves to preserve the way of life of the native Bedouin people, who are also responsible for much of the tourist services here.

Scuba diving is popular and well-served in Nabq, with unique and varied underwater landscapes, offering sandy slopes leading to the rich and amazingly well-preserved coral reefs, which boast a very rich and diverse variety of fish. The beaches are beautiful, as one would expect in a protected area, and activities such as beach volleyball, beach football and basketball are available all day, so visitors can enjoy some energetic exercise.
