Remarkable Red Sea holidays 2020

The idyllic Red Sea coast is a beach lover's paradise, with miles upon miles of golden sands, year-round sunshine and clear waters with spectacular coral reefs. 

Conditions are perfect for watersports and divers flock here to enjoy some of the top dive sites in the world. 

Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway for two or an action-packed family break, holidays to the Red Sea offer beautiful beaches to relax on and bright blue seas to play in. 

If you fancy something more active, there are plenty of sports and historical sites to enjoy in the likes of Hurghada, but it’s very easy to while away many a happy day in Soma Bay or Marsa Alam simply lazing on a sun lounger as you enjoy the warm sun and the sea views on your 2020 escape.  

Red Sea holidays are great for:

  • All inclusive holidays - There are so many Red Sea resorts to choose from, and all of them offer all inclusive package deals made for families or couples looking for a hassle-free break. Most offer kid’s clubs and evening entertainment to keep you busy.
  • Family holidays - Egypt holidays are great for families and the kids will love activities such as Nile cruises, camel riding or snorkelling in Egypt’s red sea.
  • Cheap holidays - The pound is largely quite strong against the Red Sea currencies so if you spend wisely, you will get a very reasonably priced holiday.

Places to see in the Red Sea

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.

Red Sea culture sights

Red Sea culture sights

Egypt is the cradle of one of the world’s oldest and most advanced civilisations, and is home to some of the world’s most spectacular cultural sights. You could combine your beach holiday with a visit to Luxor, where the ancient capital of Thebes was located. and where you can still gasp in amazement at the magnificent temples and the remarkable tombs of the Valley of the Kings. Hidden away in the hills beyond the Red Sea coast are two of Egypt’s oldest monasteries, dedicated to St Paul (the larger of the two) and St Anthony, which date back almost two thousand years to the very beginning of Christianity. Mount Sinai, one of the most important sacred places in the Christian, Jewish and Islamic religions, is home to another ancient monastery, St Catherine’s, which overlooks a spectacular gorge. A path ascends to the summit of Mount Sinai, where Moses is said to have received the tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments.
