Why go to Red Sea

Soft, golden sands, camel treks, ancient Bedouin traditions, luxury hotels, family attractions, hours and hours of sunshine and some of the world's best dive sites: it's little wonder that more and more Brits are choosing Red Sea holidays.

Stretching for more than a thousand miles from Egypt, down between Africa and the Middle East and flowing out into the Arabian Sea, the Red Sea is a vast and beautiful body of water.

Four airports deliver holidaymakers to the delights of the Red Sea's Egyptian shores, where they have the choice of a host of famous resorts, as well as a few lesser-known gems.

The Red Sea Riviera attracts holidaymakers thanks to excellent facilities, wonderful dive sites, beautiful views, and the sort of year-round weather that Mediterranean destinations can only pray for. So take your pick from popular beach hotspots such as Sharm el Sheikh, Taba, Marsa Alam and Hurghada, or quieter, but equally lovely resorts such as El Gouna and Nuweiba. Wherever you choose to base your trip, you will be sure to enjoy holidays in Red Sea resorts. And thanks to the numerous airports in the region, the transfer time to your hotel will never be that long.
