Top destinations for an all inclusive holiday in Egypt 

  • Hurghada
    Hurghada is a relaxing area, where desert plains and beaches contrast to delight the senses. It is a sunworshipper's dream and a good place for families to enjoy the beach. It's also a great location for couples to honeymoon and play. Hurghada is located along the coastline and has been a popular seaside holiday destination since the 1980s. El Dahar (The Old Town) is the historic area, but if you want a modern Egypt holiday, you can venture downtown to El Memsa.  
  • Marsa Alam on the Red Sea
    Marsa Alam was once a little fishing village but is now a picturesque holiday town. Forming part of the coveted Riviera, the town is quieter than the tourist-oriented towns in Egypt. Hot days during the summer are offset by the sea's serene coolness and long days in the sun can be enjoyed by visitors. Winter temperatures remain in the 20s which makes Marsa Alam a great place to enjoy a holiday, all year round. 
  • El Gouna
    El Gouna's main beach is a long one -stretching 10km. This is a watersport enthusiast's mecca and visitors can enjoy jet skiing, try a spot of windsurfing or take a tour on a banana boat. If you tire of the water you can go on a jeep safari or ride a camel! As night falls, visitors and locals come together to enjoy seafood and cocktails at local restaurants, or dance the night away at local discos.
