Egypt ranked the top second best diving destination in the world, according to <a href="http:\/\/divemagazine.co.uk\/travel\/8729-top-ten-best-scuba-diving-destinations-2019" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">DIVE magazine<\/a>.\r\n\r\nThe magazine's readers voted for Egypt to occupy the second place after Indonesia.\r\n\r\nThe world\u2019s leading scuba diving magazine mentioned that Egypt\u2019s Red Sea has more than 400 recorded species of coral, several hundred kinds of fish, 20% of which are endemic, impressive reefs, dramatic walls, backed by well-established dive industry.\r\n\r\nRas Mohammed topped the best diving sites worldwide. Also, St. John\u2019s Reef was selected as a hotspot, showing some of the most spectacular underwater wildlife vistas.\r\n\r\n[caption id="attachment_92659" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]<img class="size-large wp-image-92659" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/11\/Stunning-Coral-Reefs-in-the-Red-Seas-Blue-Water-1024x427.jpg" alt="Stunning Coral Reefs in the Red Sea's Blue Water" width="1024" height="427" \/> Stunning Coral Reefs in the Red Sea's Blue Water[\/caption]\r\n\r\nDivers could see large schools of jacks and batfish hang in the water at the peak of summer, the UK publication noted.\r\n\r\nBut the magazine urged the divers to be cautious from the oceanic whitetip shark which approaches from the isolated moorings.\r\n\r\nThe magazine wasn\u2019t enough with that. It also spotted light on the legendary Brothers Islands, which are a pair of tiny islands situated about 5 minutes from each other. They are located 200 km south of Ras Mohammed and are steep-sided cones, likely formed by volcanic eruptions.\r\n\r\nIn this regard, Tourism Minister Dr. Rania Al-Mashat congratulated Egypt on this rank. She tweeted: "It comes as no surprise that Egypt ranks the 2nd top diving destination in the world with its very well-established dive industry and hundred species of corals and fish, stunning reefs and dramatic walls. Marvel at our blue beauty."\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/RaniaAlMashat\/status\/1198259885332467713\r\n\r\nEgypt was followed by Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Cura\u00e7ao, Palau, Maldives, Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Gal\u00e1pagos Islands of Ecuador.\r\n\r\nIn 2018, Egypt ranked third among the top 10 scuba diving destinations in the world.\r\n\r\nDIVE is a world\u2019s leading scuba diving magazine, featuring the best diving gear reviews, top diving destinations, and awesome photography.
