Egypt is a very popular holiday destination in North Africa as it attracts a wide variety of visitor. There are those seeking a relaxing beach holiday or a Nile cruise; those who fancy trekking through the desert; those with an interest in antiquities. The latter group would generally be based in Cairo but with continuing political unrest, visitors should check the advice from the Foreign Office regarding the safety of their trip. While the advice may be to avoid large cities, the Red Sea coastal resorts remain open for business and there are some great bargains on offer. If you are looking for a guarantee of sunshine, warm clear water, luxurious accommodation and great service, choose from the likes of Sharm el Sheikh, Hurghada or Marsa Alam. Those for whom winter appears never-ending and who feel the need to top up their vitamin D levels should consider an Egypt holiday. Temperatures in the winter months remain in the mid to high twenties, a pleasant change from home. Be aware that summer temperatures can be searingly hot.
The Red Sea resorts offer long stretches of glistening soft sand. Where coral reefs are close to the shore access to the water is via pontoons which take you into deeper water. This is great for snorkellers but not so good for those with young children. However, where this is the case, the larger hotel complexes construct artificial beaches, perfect for toddlers. The more energetic holidaymaker can choose from a variety of water sports. Scuba diving and snorkelling are particularly popular as the fertile reefs have an abundance of wonderful marine life.
