Coral Beach Rotana Resort, Hurghada, Egypt, is an ideal place where naturists can enjoy one of the richest marine ecosystems – coral reefs of the Red Sea – without having to wear swimsuits. It is the right place to feel unity with the nature: fishes there are not only immensely diverse but are also quite tame! And since life in the coral reef is concentrated in 2-5 upper meters of the sea, it is easy to observe it without much of equipment: snorkeling is perfect. Just dip into the water, and you will see a world utterly different from the surrounding desert, and quite like nowhere else!
I wish I had my underwater camera that time…
It is also a unique place in the entire North Africa and Near East region, besides Israel, where nudists are officially tolerated, including the Egyptian staff of the hotel. However, the web site of the hotel does not include information about the beach, probably to avoid bureaucratic problems with authorities who might not like it. The nudist part of the beach is about several hundreds meters long,
but only the first 50 or so are equipped (this area is exactly shown on the map).
There are wind- and sun-protecting shields and huts at your disposal.
You could of course hang out naked in your bungalow too, but it’s not why you would go there, right?
The best thing about this resort, is that you can swim as you like all along the vast coral reefs.
I think we are pretty clear on this website that swimsuits are a nuisance ;-) Given the warmth of the Red Sea waters, you won’t need a wetsuit for snorkeling either!
Besides hours of swimming (the water is so warm that you really can stay for few hours in the sea), other water activities are available at the resort as well.
I also saw several ospreys there; it was quite a show when they went on fishing spree!
But even without all this, just looking at those crystal clear waters can be mesmarizing.
You can also observe the sunrise over the sea
and sunset over the desert.
There won’t be a shortage of sun in Hurghada, you needn’t worry about the weather to get your all-over tan!)
