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.
What about swimming with dolphins in their natural environment? We recommend a trip to Sataya Reef which houses colonies of dolphins that are particularly known for their sociability, playfulness and sense of touch.
To get a different view of Egypt, you may plan a camel ride in the desert. Slip into the shoes of the Bedouins and get to know more about their culture, their traditions and about camels accompanying them in their daily lives.
Experience kitesurfing to get new sensations. Red Sea coasts are the dream place to experiment this activity in the best conditions - favourable winds, clear and shallow waters!
El-Quseir is one of the oldest cities in Egypt. Well-known for its splendid coral reefs, the city also bears witness of its strategic past, particularly in the context of trade.
Wadi El Gemal National Park houses an extraordinary biodiversity with animals and plants. A trip to this unique site will allow you to meet rare species and to enjoy wonderful landscapes.
Stop over at Sharm El Luli (located on the coast of Wadi el Gemal National Park) to enjoy the beauty of an iconic beach. El Qulan with its mangroves is also worth a visit for its unspoilt and authentic character.
This little 16th-century coastal town is situated between Hurghada (approx. 140 km) and Marsa Alam (approx. 135 km). With its wonderful underwater diving sites, snorkelling and reefs beside the shore, the region of El Quseir has become a fashionable destination.

The bay also offers optimal conditions for diving and snorkelling. Approx. 6 km from Marsa Alam airport.
About 270 km to the south of Hurghada, this little coastal town, unknown until only a few years ago, has become a sought-after tourist destination thanks to its excellent underwater diving and snorkelling sites and the opening of the international airport (approx. 60 km). The hotels in the region have been built recently. They provide generous accommodation and are generally located outside the town.
Dive into the wonderful underwater universe of the Red Sea and treat yourself to a diving package that you will never forget! Whether you are an experienced diver or a beginner, there are courses for everyone. Snorkelling is also available if anyone in your group prefers that option. All equipment is available for hire at the resort and you can reserve lunch with drinks on board the boat.

Ramadan (Muslim fasting period) may affect the opening of some bars and restaurants located outside the hotel. It may as well have an impact on some activities offered by the hotel and external service providers.
Owing to the coral reefs, you are recommended to wear adapted shoes when swimming. Direct access to the sea may be limited to a restricted zone and can also be made by a walkway.
In all hotels, proper attire is required for dinner (long trousers for gentlemen).
Security measures for Egypt have been introduced by Luxair (in accordance with the instructions issued by the Directorate of Civil Aviation in Luxembourg).
To facilitate implementation of these measures, we prefer travellers to use hard cases with integrated locks, or cases that allow a padlock or seal to be attached to prevent any illegal object being inserted into the luggage.
We encourage our guests to use cases that are in good condition on which these seals can be placed, preventing any opening of more than 1 cm. If a guest is taking bags that cannot be fully secured with seals, the hold luggage must be sealed with plastic before check-in at Marsa Alam, at the passenger’s own expense.
In order to ensure that these measures are correctly implemented, we ask guests to follow the instructions received at the airport by the staff in charge. We must inform you that any refusal to cooperate with our local partners may result in the transport of luggage being denied.
