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.
