Leave the sunshine of the desert behind you for a while and head for the sea shore. The number one destination for snorkeling in the Middle East is, of course, the Red Sea, which can be reached through Egypt, Jordan or Israel, among others. Its waters are crystal clear, warm and protected from the ocean currents, giving rise to the development of exceptional underwater life that is unique in the world. But the Middle East has other surprises in store: the Persian Gulf and, above all, the Gulf of Oman jealously conceal top-class snorkeling spots.
