The land of legends and the cradle of a fascinating civilisation, Egypt also offers a coastline dotted with seaside resorts to suit everyone. With the sun which shines endlessly all year, beaches which stretch as far as you can see and sensational seabeds, the banks of the Red Sea have long been popular with tourists the world over. Premier quality hotels welcome lovers of diving and swimming, families with children and holidaymakers of all sorts.
Further south from Hurghada, Marsa Alam is a popular destination for amateur divers seeking an authentic experience, and holidaymakers looking for sun. Comfort hotels offer top-of-the-range facilities for an easy-going or active seaside holiday. With many natural reefs, underwater caves and shoals of dolphins, Marsa Alam is also a fascinating and secret place that is unspoiled by mass tourism,
where the underwater world has remained intact.
This small coastal town, once an important trading and cargo port, is located between Hurghada (140 km) and Marsa Alam (135 km). Today it is popular mainly for its exceptional seabed and coral reefs, which can often be reached from the beach. An absolute must for snorkellers and divers! Distance to the airport: 75 km.
The beautiful bay of Madinat Coraya, where some hotels are located, belongs to Marsa Alam. It is one of the few bathing bays in the area that have shallow sloping access to the sea from the beach. The sheltered location also makes the bay an ideal holiday destination for families. An aqua park in Madinat Coraya offers bathing fun for young and old and ensures varied holiday fun. Furthermore, the bay offers very good conditions for diving and snorkelling. Distance to the airport: 6 km.
This coastal town, almost unknown a few years ago, about 270 km south of Hurghada, has developed rapidly in tourist terms because of its excellent diving and snorkelling conditions and after the opening of the international airport. The mostly new, modern and spacious hotels in the region are usually located outside the town. Distance to the airport: 60 km.
Once a coastal village, Port Ghalib has developed into a trendy seaside resort since the 2000s. Characterised by its artificial harbour for up to 1000 yachts, its restaurants, shops and busy souks, it is also appreciated for its beautiful beaches, diving spots and ultra-modern hotel facilities. Distance to the airport: 5 km.
