White Lagoon

White Lagoon, Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt

The White Lagoon is only accessible by boat from Sharm el-Sheikh, and is one of the main attractions for everyone next to the Tiran Islands. They belong to an archipelago that has status as protected area, and may not be visited in the future.
For divers, the choice goes much further. There are many shipwrecks out here, which means not only rich fish life but also underwater adventures. The Jackson Reef is another great attraction, with its 70 metre drop-off.
