Marsa Shoona is a lagoon between the city of Marsa Alam and his airport, in the Red Sea, Egypt.

Marsa Shoona

It was a trip proposed by SeaWorld diving, and so we went… and I assure you… it’s worth a while, sure!

It’s a pity that we have found some small ships into the lagoon, in the left reef, but I think the most beautiful reef was in the right, where we have found many turtles, and one marine eagle, that I’m sorry I couldn’t take a picture.

Here the pictures of this wonderful lagoon
