What we love

With a fantastic year-round climate and an abundance of ancient sites to explore, Egypt has everything you could wish for in both a short or long stay. 

The destination

When you think of luxury holidays to Egypt you will often think of Sharm el Sheikh. Sharm el Sheikh on the southernmost tip of the Sinai Peninsular is probably the most developed in this region of Egypt, whilst over on the western shoreline, the Red Sea Resorts around Hurghada boast some of the best hotels and dive sites in the world.

Name a water sport and Sharm El Sheikh has it. The Red Sea Riviera plays host to unbelievably clear blue waters which provide spectacular snorkelling and diving opportunities. Sharm el Sheikh's underwater world is as lively as its beaches; this time frequented by jewel-coloured marine life rather than bronzed holidaymakers. Besides the diving, you can get your adrenaline pumping with some water-skiing, parasailing, or take in the amazing views as you parasail. For a lower pace of life you can paddle gently through the water in a pedal boat or canoe. Away from the beach, Cleo Park is overflowing with water chutes, slides, rapids, waves, and pools – great for kids.

With no fixed prices, haggling is the aim of the game when it comes to shopping in Sharm el Sheikh. The bazaars are lined with traditional souvenirs like rugs, silk shawls and leather goods, whilst the many perfume and jewellery shops will tempt you if sparkles and scents are your weakness. For big name brands the Il Mercato shopping mall is the place to visit.

For an altogether different experience, head out into the desert for a bumpy stroll atop a camel or pound over the incredible dunes in a 4x4 or quad bike. A visit to Egypt wouldn’t be complete without an evening spent enjoying the Bedouin hospitality with a feast in a candlelit tent; sipping Bedouin tea and breathing in the shisha smoke as the sun sets over the desert.
