New country souvenir, Egypt, with Geocache of the Week: Tauchen im Roten Meer / Diving in the Red Sea

Today we release a new country/regional souvenir for Egypt! If you have found a geocache in Egypt, you automatically receive the souvenir on your profile.

Along the shores of the Red Sea, about 500 kilometers (300 miles) southeast of Cairo, you will find Soma Bay, a sunny beach area full of activities such as sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.

Many wrecks have become an oasis for aquatic life, but this one is especially amazing. It’s our Geocache of the Week.
