Explore on Holidays to Egypt

With glorious year-round sunshine, Egypt holidays are a chance to dive into beautiful white beaches, vibrant coral reefs and some of the world’s most important historical landmarks.

The Egyptian coast of the Red Sea is fast becoming a top all inclusive destination for holidaymakers, with Sharm El Sheikh ranking as one of the most popular resorts for both winter and summer sun. A vibrant resort, it provides an ideal spot to experience the country’s unique wildlife and thrilling water sports – with plenty of things to do in the surrounding areas.

Egypt is one of the friendliest nations in the world, and you can find welcoming people in every corner of the country. As with all countries in the Middle East, ensure you check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office before booking your holidays to Egypt.

Cities and Sands

You are truly spoilt for choice with accommodation on an Egypt holiday. Fancy a top-notch hotel overlooking the Nile in Luxor, a boutique hotel with a view of the Mediterranean in Alexandria or a luxury retreat on the picturesque Nabq in Sharm El-Sheikh? Head to the bustling city of Cairo to browse its vibrant markets or step back in time to ancient Egypt with a visit to Giza.

If you’d rather a glorious beach break on your holidays in Egypt, head to Hurghada and enjoy a peaceful atmosphere. A beach getaway to Marsa Alam will offer you a hive of buzzing bars and clubs, with great shopping opportunities – from high-end brands to vibrant bazaars.

Discover Ancient Egypt

For a memorable experience on your holidays to Egypt, visit the historic cities found on the north and south of the Nile. Enjoy the relaxing seaside feel of Alexandria, visiting the stunning modern library that houses ancient artefacts from the later and most famous part of ancient Egyptian history, the Ptolemys and Cleopatra.

A few hours due south and you’ll find the capital of Cairo and the incredible ancient site of Giza. Here, you’ll find jaw-dropping sights – from the Great Pyramid of Giza to a myriad of ancient tombs. Meander your way down the Nile with a calming felucca boat cruise, taking in the majestic historical sites along the way.

Journey into Luxor and you’ll soon find the hidden treasures of the Valley of the Kings. Wander through the halls of ancient pharaohs at Medinat Habu, read their histories on the walls of Luxor Temple and visit the stunning Deir el-Bahari, dedicated to the first known female pharaoh, Hatsheput.

A trip to Egypt is truly unforgettable, it offers a whole host of unique activities for the entire family. Imagine yourself on a camel ride in the heart of the desert before an afternoon of diving in the Red Sea; after all, it is known as one of the Seven Wonders of the underwater world. From the bustling streets of Cairo to laid-back Dahab, the spectacular sights of Luxor and the glorious beaches of Hurghada – you’ll find a wealth of new experiences to inspire you on your Egypt holidays.
