Okay, now we don't understand why Ariel would ever escape from under the sea - it's gorgeous down there! We really need to get on this scuba diving thing, especially right here in the Red Sea. When Scuba Travel magazine put out a call for divers to vote on the world's best diving sites, 12 of the 100 selected sites were right here in Egypt. Diverse species, beautiful corals, crystal clear waters – Egypt boasts a whole lot of beauty beneath its beautiful blues. The Red Sea – with over 1,000 species of invertebrates and over 200 species of soft and hard coral – has jaw-dropping sites that bring travellers from all over the globe to marvel at. Where, exactly?
