As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, there have been a few notable incidents involving shark attacks on people in Egypt.
One of the most well-known incidents occurred in 2010 in Sharm El Sheikh, a popular tourist destination on the Sinai Peninsula.
In a series of separate incidents over a few days, several tourists were attacked by sharks in the waters near the resort area.
These incidents resulted in multiple injuries and fatalities.
Another significant incident took place in 2015 when a German tourist was fatally attacked by a shark while snorkeling off the coast of Marsa Alam, located south of Hurghada.
It’s important to remember that such incidents are relatively rare considering the number of people who visit Egypt’s coastal areas and engage in water activities.
Authorities in Egypt take measures to minimize the risk of shark attacks, including implementing monitoring programs and issuing guidelines for beach safety.
These incidents should not deter visitors from enjoying the beautiful beaches and waters of Egypt, but it’s always advisable to stay informed about any local guidelines or warnings regarding marine activities.
