    Fleur-de-Mer | Sailboat ~ 12.9 m

    Very good protection and easy access to the shore and a plethora of nice restaurants, a BestWay supermarket etc. In order to not anchor on the coral reefs which can yield heavy fines apart from not wanting to destroy coral of course, I anchored on the 30m depth floor of the bay itself. Closer to the dock there may be more shallow anchorage possible, but forgot to ask if it would have been OK. According to both the little marina (more just a pier, but easy to attach dinghy to), and the Navy, the anchor spot I had picked was absolutely fine though with my Egyptian Cruising Permit from the Coast Guard.
