Why go to Marsa Alam

Sandy beaches, scorching temperatures and colourful coral reefs await in Marsa Alam, a resort town on the Red Sea in Egypt. Once the well-kept secret of the diving community, its coasts have since been commandeered by sleek hotels, making it a popular choice for couples and groups looking to chill out by day and dress up at night.

A holiday in Marsa Alam is all about relaxation and luxury, from week-long wellness retreats to waiter service at your sun lounger. Some of the best spas in Egypt have set up shop here – try a treatment beneath the beachside massage tent at Planet Spa in the Hilton Nubian, where Ancient Egyptian techniques meet modern methods.

You won’t have to go far for a fun evening, either. Alcohol isn’t served everywhere so hotels host party nights around their pools with drinks and live DJs to keep you dancing all night long. If you’re not a guest, you can buy a ticket. Should you want to go out, Port Ghalib Marina is the place to be thanks to a variety of sports bars, shisha lounges, authentic Egyptian cafes and several restaurants with plush outdoor seating, overlooking the yachts.
