Beaches

Egypt is packed with great beaches along the coast, where you can unwind with water sports or just a spot of sunbathing. Whether your thing is wind surfing, scuba diving or simply chilling by the sea, you’ll find that Egypt can meet your needs, particularly in the glittering Red Sea resorts. Sharm El Sheikh is home to great parasailing, so why not see the landscape from up above? Meanwhile kiteboarding is quickly becoming one of the most popular high-octane water sports and really should be tried by thrill seekers.

Diving

Egypt is simply perfect for scuba diving, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro. You’ll have access to some wonderful underwater adventures, with wrecks, cave diving and drift dives. Dahab is a popular spot for diving and features the legendary Black Hole, while other in-demand sites include Sharm El Sheikh, El Gouna and Marsa Alam. You will see some astounding marine life including dolphins, species of fish unique to the country and maybe even a shark. Some hotels even have dive centres and classes, such as the Hilton Marsa Alam Nubian Resort.

Sunbathing

For many, sunbathing is an essential part of any summer holiday and the beaches are perfect for this. Sharm El Sheikh’s beaches are among some of the most popular, or there is Hurghada, a beautiful Red Sea resort 500km south of Cairo filled with sandy bays and backed by mountains. Also try out the former fishing village of Marsa Alam, which is the southern-most resort on the Red Sea coastline. Wherever you choose to sunbathe, remember that you need to wear sun cream all-year round on a holiday in Egypt and you should drink plenty of bottled water to stay hydrated.

Snorkelling

Snorkelling is the ideal way to spend time at the beach, thanks to the warm and clear waters making it incredibly easy to see marine life by the shore. It’s also popular due to the fact that, unlike diving, there is no training needed. By far the most popular place to snorkel is Sharm El Sheikh, with its perfect visibility, and the trendy Naama Bay is regularly packed with holidaymakers and their snorkels. Other places to consider for underwater adventures are Soma Bay and Makadi Bay, both of which have wonderful colourful reefs and warm waters that are perfect for snorkelers of any age.
