Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt’s Red Sea Coast

Plan an Exotic Beach Holiday in Africa

Pyramids are not the only beautiful sites you will find in Egypt

Many countries in North Africa boast an enviable location on the sea. Some visitors head to Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia for the ancient culture and striking architecture. But after exploring the desert landscape and culture, there’s still plenty of relaxing, scuba-diving and windsurfing to be experienced at the area’s lovely beaches.


Visitors to Egypt can’t miss the pyramids and the massive temples. But after exploring the ancient ruins and holy spots, it’s essential to check out Egypt’s more modern delights along the Red Sea coast.

Sharm el Sheikh is Sinai’s most expensive beach area with an abundance of high-end resorts and plenty of scuba tour outfitters. All of the rooms and suites at the Four Seasons have a balcony or terrace and most boast a seaside view. Guests can lounge in a poolside cabana overlooking the 10,764 square foot freshwater pool or lounge on the beach. Just a few miles away, Na’ama Bay is another upscale beach resort likened to a ritzy Mediterranean seaside village with international hotels, restaurants and bars.

Across the Red Sea, El Gouna is a town with personality that brings together classic charm and modern touches for a unique seaside experience. There are 14 hotels on 6 miles of beachfront and small islands that are connected by a series of lagoons. Take a 2-hour boat ride to remote islands like Tawila Island and Gobal Island and enjoy a hideaway with dazzling white sands and clear turquoise sea. For more action, Mangroovy Beach has great kite-surfing while the Marina Beach Club has rows of sun beds and chair-side food and beverage service.

The sprawling Port Ghalib complex is just 5 minutes from the Marsa Alam and about 2 hours on the road from the Valley of the Kings. There are 4 hotels in this over-the-top oasis of abundant Arabic gardens alongside majestic pools and lagoons. The beaches outside of the hotels offer prime sunbathing spots, but the real draw is the marina. With an enviable location, the Port Ghalib marina allows divers to easily access the best dive sites in the Red Sea including Rocky Island, Zabagad Island, Daedalus Reef and the Brothers Island.

Most resort towns pride themselves on endless days of sunshine, but the Bay of Dahab relies on wind power to keep the visitors happy. Thanks to a prime location in the wind tunnel of the gulf of Aquaba, the town has 300 days of wind ideal for windsurfing and kite-surfing. Newbies and seasoned windsurfers can hone their skills on a vacation with the Harry Nass Surf and Action Center including lodging, lessons and transportation to the best sheltered lagoons.
