Given that this is the Red Sea, you wonder how these waters can be so shockingly blue. Ponder this possible misnomer and the utter blueness as you swim with a shoal of snappers here at Shark Reef, a coral mount in Egypt’s Ras Mohamed National Park and a favorite among divers. Near the Sharm el-Sheikh resort, Shark Reef is known for its sheer height and bounty of sea life. Commune with anemone, lion fish and maybe even a shark or two, while you disappear into the vivid waters of the deep blue Red Sea.
