Egypt - Red Sea - Marsa Alam: Hamata Islands
Egypt

Emerging only a meter from the water, Hamatas are incredible small islands in Red Sea, just outside the coast of Southern Egypt. Located in the area of Marsa Alam, they are dramatically fascinating. All around, the sea is a dream: the best crystal water with a reef full of all types of fish and corals. Few meters inside, there is only nude desert: blinding sun, burning air, boiling soil, no shadows ... miserable bushes and angry birds are the only sign of life on earth.

Covering an area of about 1,010,000 square kilometers (390,000 sq mi), Egypt borders the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza Strip and Israel to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south and Libya to the west.Egypt is one of the most populous countries in Africa and the Middle East.

The large areas of the Sahara Desert are sparsely inhabited. About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with the majority spread across the densely-populated centres of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx.
