Why go to the Red Sea

A playground with endless sunshine, sandy beaches and excellent value hotels, the Red Sea coast is a year-round haven of relaxation. The focus here is on having fun, whether it’s at a waterpark, on a golf course, in a bazaar or simply on a sun-lounger by the pool.

Resorts dominate this stretch of sun-soaked coast, catering to all whims and budgets; there are bargain options, luxurious pads and everything in between.

Unsure about where to stay on your Red Sea holiday? The bustling centre of Hurghada is the best choice for those looking for a lively nightlife, whereas the areas further south around Marsa Alam are particularly quiet and tranquil. Purpose-built resorts with a choice of all-inclusive hotels including El Gouna and Makadi Bay are well suited to families.
