a destination a la carte

The great thing about the region is that the possibilities are endless – you can make your holiday exactly what you want it to be. Among the most varied activities offered by the main destinations of the region, you can take the chance to pamper at El Gouna, or  taste one of the aquatic sports at Hurghada, to explore the peaceful diving sites of Marsa Alam or to chill out in the luxury resort of Porto Ghalib, or even to enjoy the sun in Taba or relax in Nuweiba, not to forget Sharm el-Sheikh famous for its nightlife and Dahab for its tranquillity.

For some visitors, simply soaking up the sun and relaxing is a key part of the trip – and this is just the place for that! As you’ll see in this guide, though, the beautiful crystal clear waters are waiting to tempt you.

If it’s relaxation you’re looking for, it’s hard to beat sitting on a jetty with your feet in the Red Sea while you watch legions of brightly
coloured fish coming to say hello.

Even if you’ve never done it before, have a taste of snorkelling and enjoy a different world where you can feel part of the life of
the sea. Of course, the Red Sea and Sinai is one of the most popular destinations in the world for experienced divers too. For snorkelers
and scuba divers, this place is like heaven. The sheer range of things to do in this region is one of many pleasant surprises for first
time visitors. For an increasing number of holidaymakers,
sport and the open air is a vital part of their time away from boring routine.

As well as fun on, or under, the water, you’ll find superb facilities for golf and climbing activities. For many golfers, planning a day’s golf and knowing, not hoping, that the sun will shine is one of the biggest pleasures. 

Egypt has taken to golf in a big way and resorts like Ain Sukhna, El Gouna, Hurghada, Sharm el- Sheikh, Taba and have fabulous courses to enjoy.For most visitors to the region, the towering
mountains are there to admire – especially when you can relax with a drink and watch their changing colours at sunrise and
sunset. One of the many theories on the origin of the Red Sea’s name is built around the beautiful red hues bouncing off the mountains and water as the sun rises and sets.

For more adventurous people, these magnificent mountains are not just for admiring – they are for climbing too. If you’d like to
try it, whether as a beginner or expert, there are many tours and teachers to show you the way.

There are many chances to enjoy the wide open spaces of Sinai, whether a trip to go camping under the stars, or a day trip to enjoy
camel trekking, mountain biking, or a jeep trip through sand dunes and mountains. Try to enjoy the desert for its glorious silence
and you’ve never really seen the night sky properly until you’ve seen it over Sinai – completely without the bright lights of home
which hide the glory of the heavens.

Egypt is a land of variety & endless choices, and the distinctive attractions of the Red Sea and Sinai make you feel as if you are a
completely different country to the Nile Valley and Desert regions – but they are close by, with the same friendly welcome and top
value. When the sun goes down, the shops become particularly busy – and you’ll find some great souvenirs to take home, especially
in cotton, leather, and local crafts. And you’ll still have time to enjoy the wide range of nightlife which has a magic all of its own.
Value for money is very much in evidence in this region. And the choice is yours – with everything from simple accommodation for
the backpacker up to the very best in boutique and luxury.
