If you want family fun and beautiful lands for your children to experience, Egypt has this too, in abundance.
The unparalleled beaches of the Red Sea coast are perfect for those wishing to relax in the sun. Just when you were worried your relaxed state would be interrupted, these beaches offer a great selection of water sports in the clear warm sea to keep the kids from bringing you back from your temporary paradise. For the more adventurous traveller, a holiday to Sharm El Sheikh is great for diving with its wonderful coral reefs offering great deep reef exploration and colourful tropical fish.
Egypt is also home to an incredibly vibrant and energetic clubbing scene. For the more hedonistic traveller, Egypt will allow you to indulge in your night time delights. After the sun sets, the party continues and the fun only stops when you decide it’s time! A Sharm El Sheikh holiday offers a lively nightlife with great bars and a wide variety of restaurants. Also with a re-energised club scene, it’s a great destination for younger groups looking for a memorable clubbing experience.
