On one side of the beach, the seas are literally teeming with marine life and aquatic plants offering some of the best dive sites in the world. Regular excursions, both for divers and also those who wish to stay dry on board the boat, offer the opportunity to see amazing sea creates both great and small, and enjoy the calm waters of the Red Sea.

On the other side the redesigned fishing towns now play host to contemporary bars, clubs and restaurants offering culinary delights from all over the world as well as some local delicacies. There is the opportunity to go camel trekking through the desert, or you could enjoy tea in a Bedouin tent and gaze at the stars as night falls. If you fancy something a little different but without busting your budget, then cheap holidays to Egypt are an excellent choice at any time of the year and areguaranteed to entertain and delight all walks of life.
