Sharm El Luli, Halayeb We Shalateen Rd, Egypt
Paradise otherwise known as Sharm El Luli is located some 60km south of Marsa Alam town – about half way to Berenice – that’s if you believe the hype surrounding this remote sandy beach and lagoon.
And that’s half the attraction – “It’s a pristine fine as talc white sandy beach that puts the Maldives in the shade” – tout the sales reps – “No it’s not. Its’ sands are pale yellow and some Caribbean beaches are better,” whinge a few dissatisfied tourists who appear mortified that their fellow travellers have ranked it the number one excursion on Trip Advisor.
