Whether you fancy a dip in the sea or a cocktail by the beach, there is a wealth of opportunities when looking for things to do in Marsa Alam.

Holidays in Marsa Alam wouldn’t be complete without riding camels through the Eastern Desert, and while you do get to find forgotten pyramids jutting out from the sandy horizon, you don’t really get a sense of the vastness of these golden landscapes until you traverse the sand dunes.

The River Nile is also a must when it comes to picturesque scenery and stunning natural appeal, Aswan in particular gives you great views of the river, supplying peaceful cruises along the calming waters, while Sharm el Sheikh will introduce you to even more plentiful diving spots.

If you’re looking to discover more about the Egypt portrayed in history books, there are some great Marsa Alam attractions for you to explore. A short journey from the resort takes you to Cleopatra’s Mine, heralded as one of the oldest emerald mines in the world.

Marsa Alam has a unique position on the shore of the Red Sea and boasts untouched sands for miles. Its beaches are unparalleled. From well-trodden stretches to footprint-free sands. Many of the hotels and resorts on the coast have their own private stretches of powdery white sand, complete with restaurants, beach bars and sun loungers – what more could you want?

The popular Abu Dabbab Beach has wonderfully white sand, a variety of water sports, as well as a reef where giant turtles and dugongs are often spotted.

Within the Wadi Gemal National Park are the two secluded beaches of Honkorab and Golaan, which make the ideal spots for sunbathing on your Marsa Alam holiday. Don’t be surprised if you see a camel or two, as this is the place for beach rides. Out on the still waters are a scattering of mangroves and beneath are amazing coral reefs, just waiting to be explored.
