The Red Sea – balmy temperatures and kaleidoscopic coral

From welcoming warm temperatures to vibrantly colourful sea life, it's no wonder the Red Sea is a sought-after destination in the Middle East. It's home to more than 1,200 species of fish, including 44 species of shark. Don your scuba-diving gear or grab your snorkel and spot angelfish, butterflyfish and clownfish as you glide through the underwater world. Plus, there are plenty of shipwrecks down in the depths, too. The most famous diving site is the SS Thistlegorm, a British steamship that was sunk during World War II. Prefer to just kick back and bask in the sunshine? Like the Dead Sea, the Red Sea is easy to float in thanks to its high salt concentration. It's also warm enough to visit throughout the year, with an average water temperature of 66°F, even in those winter months.
