Summary

Egypt

Egypt holidays take you to an alluring country where antiquity and modernity mingle. Although the great pyramids and temples are on many “must see” lists, the Red Sea resorts are, for hundreds of thousands, the great attraction. The guarantee of sunshine, even in winter, has great appeal for sun starved Brits. With civil disorder at the present time, do check the current advice from the Foreign Office. It may be that Cairo and its archaeological sites are out of bounds while the coastal resorts are safe.

The Red Sea resorts have been built to high specifications and provide superb levels of luxury and comfort. Service is excellent. The hotels are surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and pools and they offer a wide range of recreational activities and sporting facilities. When choosing your board basis be sure to check the all-inclusive tariff as it may be cheaper than you think and offer good value.

Restaurants cater for all. The more conservative British palate will find restaurants serving familiar dishes as well as traditional fare and international cuisine. It is important to drink only bottled water and to check that the seal is intact. The large resorts have lively bars for evening entertainment but in general hotels provide a low-key nightlife.

The most popular resort is Sharm el Sheik closely followed by Marsa Alam and Hurghada. All have long stretches of sun bleached sands gently washed by the crystal waters of the Red Sea. Water sports abound with snorkelling and scuba diving in great demand. The off shore coral reef is very fertile with a great variety of marine life including the occasional shark! Where entry to the sea is rocky, swimmers can make use of wooden jetties that stretch out into deeper water.

Low cost airlines operate from many regional airports. Take an early flight and you'll arrive in time for a late lunch. Flight duration is five hours. Unless you enjoy temperatures close to forty, you should avoid the height of the summer season. Winter sees temperatures in the mid to late twenties the perfect antidote to the short, dark days of winter.
