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.

Much of the accommodation in the Red Sea area is devoted to all-inclusive holidays, with many properties more like resort complexes. However, you will also find hotels offering bed and breakfast and half-board deals for those who prefer to eat out. Just ensure your chosen hotel has places nearby to explore as some resorts do not have much on offer outside your hotel complex.

You can fly intoSharm El Sheikh Airport(SSH), which serves the largest and one of the most popular resorts - Sharm el Sheikh, plus other northern resorts such as hippy hangoutDahaband quiet Taba or Nuweiba (Taba Airport - code: TCP - also caters for the northern part of the Red Sea); Hurghada Airport (HRG) delivers travellers to the western shore and hugely-popular resorts such as Hurghada and Makadi Bay; while Marsa Alam Airport (RMF), which is much further south on the western coastline, serves fast-growingMarsa Alam.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
