I’ve snorkeled the Mexican Yucatán and the Caribbean, but they pale in comparison to Egypt’s Red Sea. Hire a boat captain and sail out from Hurghada. Nearly 1250 miles of reef coastline - with stunning brain corals, sea grasses, and transparent aquamarine water 20-ft. deep - stretches out from the shores of this bustling resort town. Head to the white sand beach of Giftun Island. Let your flippers glide through the warm water. Watch the tiny ripples caress the narrow shelves riddled with rainbow-hued coral and teeming with Nemo-like clownfish, emperor angels and my favorite - parrot fish - with their vivid turquoise coloring and pursed blue lips. Don’t forget your camera.
