Egypt is a unique blend of timeless fascination and modern approaches to Holidaymaking which give it a very special place in the world of tourism, broadly speaking, tourist areas of Egypt can be divided into the Nile Valley, the Deserts and Oases, and the Red Sea and Sinai region.
Travelling between these areas is very easy, and it’s quite simple to book a Holiday which combines very different experiences in one trip.
It’s no surprise that the Red Sea and Sinai is now one of the most popular and fastest growing tourism destinations in the world.
As well as the peaceful sun and sand holiday, there’s a huge range of activities on hand including world-famous diving, desert trips, climbing, golf, and national parks to name a few! It has something for everyone and the friendly atmosphere and wide range of activities means that it has become particularly popular with families.

Located near the Eastern Desert and south of the Sinai, the Red Sea Riviera is a long coastal area full of beautiful beaches that lead to the Red Sea. Here you’ll be able to swim among dolphins, dugongs and an overwhelming number of flora and fauna.
The year-round sunshine on the Egyptian Red Sea makes it a perfect diving destination at any time of the year. Even in the first 3 months of the year, when water temperatures range from 21 to 22 degrees, you can still swim, snorkel or dive in the crystal blue waters.
You can take to a touristic hot spot destination and stay in any of the year round international hotels at Sharm El Sheikh. In the pleasant climate of Hurghada, you can go underwater fishing, snorkeling, camping, and visit the world’s largest aqua-culture museum.

One of the many theories on the origin of the Red Sea’s name is built around the beautiful red hues bouncing off the mountains and water as the sun rises and sets.

If you’d like to try it, whether as a beginner or expert, there are many tours and teachers to show you the way.
