The Red Sea Coast is one of the most up-and-coming tourist destinations in the whole of the world. A very quiet part of the globe up until the 1980s due to a lot of mining activity, the region is now a travel hotspot due to its luscious beaches, turquoise waters, historical sites and truly unique location in the world. There are now a number of blooming resorts here including Hurghada and Taba.
Low-cost holidays to the Red Sea area of Egypt are starting to become very popular and the region can be reached from a select number of airports in the UK.

The Red Sea Coast of Egypt is at its most lively and busiest during the summer period that runs from spring until autumn. Despite the very hot temperatures inland, the Red Sea Coast remains warm but not scorching. Temperatures tend to reach the low 30s throughout these summer months. Prices do tend to drop-off outside of these summer months and this corresponds with a drop in the temperatures too, although the winter will still see temperatures in the low 20s. Because of this, there is no real bad time to visit the Red Sea Coast.
One of the best things to do in this region is to park yourself up anywhere along the coast. Golden sands and clear waters can be found all the way along the coast with many resorts situated here too. There are a number of island reefs which are extremely popular with tourists near the resort of Hurghada whereas if you want to visit some resorts with not much tourism at all, Port Safaga and Marsa Alam are fantastic options.
Due to the increasing number of tourists to the region over recent years, the amount of choice for accommodation has also grown significantly. You will find no shortage of luxury complexes, affordable all inclusive hotels by the beach and more homely apartments lined along the Red Sea Coast. The same can be said for the number of restaurants in the area, with many serving up traditional dishes, seafood and some international cuisine to cater to whatever your taste buds desire.
