    Marsa Alam (o Marsà ‘Alam, in arabo مرسى علم) è stato fino a pochi anni fa un piccolo villaggio di pescatori situato in Egitto, sulla costa ovest del Mar Rosso.
    Negli ultimi anni, a seguito dell'apertura dell'aeroporto internazionale (codice ICAO: HEMA, codice IATA: RMF) nel 2001, è cresciuto rapidamente fino a divenire una popolare destinazione turistica, come lo sono già Sharm el Sheikh e Hurghada.
    Marsa Alam è situata in prossimità del Tropico del Cancro, dove il Mar Rosso incontra il deserto del Sahara, e si presenta ricca di palmeti e mangrovie, con un mare ricco di pesce per via della presenza della barriera corallina. Quest'ultima è molto rinomata tra i subacquei per via dei molti siti d'immersione ancora incontaminati, in cui si possono incontrare facilmente delfini (del genere stenella rostrata), dugongo e squali martello.

    Marsa Alam (Arabic: مرسى علم‎) is a town in south-eastern Egypt, on the west coast of the Red Sea. It is currently seeing increasing popularity as a tourist destination and development including the opening of Marsa Alam Airport in 2001.
    Marsa Alam is situated near the Tropic of Cancer where the Arabian Desert meets the Red Sea, and it has the appearance of a tropical paradise with its palm trees, mangroves and sea coasts fringed with barrier coral reefs. It has already gained a strong reputation amongst scuba divers due to its numerous and unspoilt diving sites both along the coast and offshore. Sightings of spinner dolphins, dugongs and hammerhead sharks are a frequent occurrence for those who venture into its waters.
