Travel Description: "This area off Egypt's east coast sports a breathtaking coral reef. Divers come from far and wide to explore its shallows and depths, while others gather here to watch whales all year round."
Notebook Description: “About six hours south of the Egyptian port city of Hurghada by boat, access to this area is extremely limited. It is close to Luxor and filled with ancient ruins. The word “Zahhab” means “gold” in Arabic. The region boasts beautiful, nearly translucent waters, but it is right next to the open sea, making it a treacherous place for divers who don’t take proper precautions."
