Life’s a Beach

Ocean views looking out to the sparkling Red Sea are not hard to come by, with resorts such as Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada City boasting vast stretches of beaches and fantastic views. If you want to dip your toes in the waters, you’ll find them wonderfully warm. Most Red Sea resorts offer an endless selection of watersports to enjoy, whether you want to get your heart racing with a jet-ski ride, try your hand at kite-surfing, or explore the coral reefs with some snorkelling.

If you fancy getting up close and personal with deep sea creatures on your holiday to the Red Sea, try a visit to the resort town of Eilat in Israel. Here you can dive down deep to view the colourful marine life at Aqua Beach, or if you’d prefer a more controlled environment, the Underwater Observatory Marine Park allows you to gaze at the world-famous coral reef, with virtual tours and informative galleries answering any queries. Alternatively, you can head to the Dolphin Reef and encounter these beautiful creatures up close for an unforgettable ocean experience.
 

Top Attractions

Aside from their picture-perfect beaches and relaxed holiday atmosphere, visiting the Red Sea is a chance to discover a new and exotic culture. From lively souks, to UNESCO World Heritage sites and desert camel rides, this area of the world has a vibrant culture and a rich history dating back to ancient times. Eilat, Israel offers a multitude of historical buildings and majestic monuments, many with religious significance, such as the Masada, a rugged ancient fortress overlooking the Dead Sea. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is equally as monumental, and many visitors flock here to see the site where Jesus was supposedly crucified and buried. The magnificent exterior is worth the visit alone, with the interior of amazing mosaics and the Tomb of Christ.

Or perhaps the famous Egyptian culture appeals? Take a break from the beach with a day trip to Cairo where you can gaze at the monumental pyramids – an ideal break for those little explorers craving some historical magic. A foray into Taba is also fun, with the Wekala District serving some of the best in Middle Eastern cuisine. Here you can grab some slow cooked beef or koftas, with pancakes and flavoured shisha pipes serving as the perfect desserts. And if you can’t get enough of the golden sand, head to Jordan where you can explore the expanse of the desert on the back of a camel.

Wine and Dine

There are plenty of dining options in the Red Sea, from atmospheric rooftop restaurants servig traditional mezzes and kebabs, to stylish eateries serving the best in international cuisine. Whether you’re in the mood to try something exotic, or you’re craving your favourite pizza, you should find something you like. And there’s some lovely chilled out beachfront cafes, serving Bedoiun food in beautiful settings with low tables and colourful rugs. Nothing could feel more exotic than enjoying a drink and some ocean views in somewhere so different from our everyday bars!
