Marsa Samadai Tondoba Bay Marsa Nayzak

Marsa Samadai – Marsa Nayzak, also called the Blue Lagoon. If you are lucky you will see turtles, big eagle rays, small violin rays or also guitar sharks, with a little luck also the sea cow.

A little miracle under the proverb: „So close to heaven“.

This excursion is also divided into three parts and begins in one of the most beautiful bays in the south of the Marsa Alam region, Marsa Samadai. Very often this bay is also called „The Blue Lagoon“ and when it opens in front of you, you know why. Here it is not rare to see turtles, big eagle rays, small violin rays or also guitar sharks, with a little luck also the sea cow and yes, also a beautifully to be seen big Baracuda.

After a few meters from the beach, the reef opens up and the bottom gradually and slowly drops off. At the reef itself you can expect a fauna and flora of Corallen and the gardens connected with it, where some funny nemos cavort. Lionfish, parrotfish, many bannerfish and many other colourful companions also decorate the great colours and shapes of the reef. Let yourself be enchanted by this place and dive into the beautiful underwater world of Marsa Samadai.

After exploring the „Blue Lagoon“, we drive to the second part of our trip, Tondoba Bay, which is only about 10 minutes away.

A swing directly at the beach, as well as comfortable sun loungers with umbrellas, invite you to stay here.
Here you can enjoy a rich buffet lunch in a local restaurant close to the beach, of course with plenty of drinks. After you have strengthened yourself properly with a following small digestion break and with view on this great lagoon, you have the possibility to relax a little bit, before it goes only a few minutes further to the third part of our excursion.

The name of this magical place is Marsa Nayzak and is a meteorite crater. This crater resembles a naturally created bathtub as it is inwardly connected to the sea by land. It was formed by an impact many years ago and is unique in the region. On closer inspection you will still find molten rock surrounding this bathtub.

The events in the bathtub itself are very different. The water is crystal clear and from the surface to a depth of about 2m you will find the same temperature as in the adjacent sea. Deeper than approx. 2m it becomes suddenly cold and the temperature of the water drops partly to under 15 degrees. However one finds here apart from single small fish, which got lost here, hardly to be regarded living beings.

The so-called „spring layer“, which lies between the different water temperatures of this crater, is probably too strong to provide a habitat for other animals. This place offers something for everyone and the fun factor is guaranteed here.
