You’ll find some of the world’s most wonderful beaches most along Egypt’s Red Sea coast. Resorts here do relaxation like nowhere else, backed by sparkling blue seas that stay warm year-round.

Stretching for some 1,200 miles, the Red Sea coast is a true holiday playground. Coral reefs and dive sites lie just offshore, while the region’s hotels offer not only amazing all-inclusive deals but a chance to experience Egypt’s famously warm hospitality. The widest choice of places to stay is around Hurghada, south of the Gulf of Suez, and in Sharm el Sheikh, across the water on the Sinai Peninsula.

Diving in the Red Sea

If you’re feeling adventurous, there’s lots to tempt you into the water on Red Sea holidays. Thanks to unparalleled visibility and abundant marine life, the diving and snorkelling is superb. Advanced divers can battle strong currents to explore once-forgotten shipwrecks, while beginners might spot manta rays, triggerfish and turtles closer to shore.

Top 5 things to do on the Red Sea

Top 5 things to do on the Red Sea

Holidays on the Red Sea can be action-packed or relaxed, depending on whether you stick to the coast or head inland to explore Egypt’s ancient historical sites.

  • Saint Catherine's Monastery has a majestic setting in the mountains of the Sinai Peninsula north of Sharm el Sheikh. It’s protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site and thought to be the world’s oldest monastic community.
  • Discovering laidback Dahab is a must. The town has long been favoured by backpackers and independent travellers.
  • Lying inland from the coast, the rugged Eastern Desert holds many treasures: ancient rock art, religious shrines and Roman ruins. Explore them on a camel safari or with a local guide.
  • From Hurghada, you can reach the Valley of the Kings on a day-trip. Tours will whisk you from the Karnak Temple and the Temple of Hatshepsut to the monumental Colossi of Memnon.
  • The one-time fishing village of Marsa Alam, on the most southerly stretch of the Red Sea coast, is quickly growing in popularity. Come to dive spectacular but little-visited sites, including the renowned Fury Shoals.

The best thing about Red Sea holidays? You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to adventure activities and watersports.

  • Kick-off a kite-surfing obsession in the shallow waters off Ras Sudr or with a class at one of the beginner-friendly schools in El Gouna.
  • PADI-certified Advanced Open Water divers should head to the Gubal Strait to explore the wreck of the SS Thistlegorm, sunk during World War II.
  • Consistent, warm weather and light winds make the Red Sea perfect for parasailing. Many Red Sea hotels organise excursions.
  • Rev up the pace with a quad-bike safari in the desert near Hurghada. Adrenaline hits are guaranteed as you fly over the dunes before stopping in a Bedouin village for tea.
  • Snorkelling in Ras Mohammed National Park offers a fun but gentle introduction to life beneath the Red Sea’s waves. Look out for stingrays, scorpion fish and angelfish.
