Enjoy World Class Diving in the Red Sea

If Egyptian pyramids are wonders of the world, the coral reefs of the Red Sea are certainly a candidate for the natural wonders as well. Their beauty is due in part to their age, which could be as much as 7,000 years old, and to their myriad lagoons, cylinders and atolls which stretch along more than one thousand miles of coastline. Search for the cheapest holidays available via Holiday Hypermarket to explore this diving paradise in the gulf between Africa and Asia.

From wreck explorers to shore snorkelers, divers of all kinds can enjoy clear, warm water off the coast of the Red Sea. In particular, Ras Mohammed, which is in a National Park about eight miles from the resort city of Sharm El Sheikh, has numerous types of kaleidoscopic coral (many of them soft corals that thrive in the nutrient-rich water). It’s also the site of the renowned shipwreck, SS Thistlegorm, which is said to resemble an underwater museum of WWII munitions.

For those less inclined to the deep, organised snorkelling trips and mini-sub rides are equally enjoyable alternatives. All inclusive Red Sea holidays also provide exciting opportunities for dolphin viewing, sunset cruises and, for those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land, desert tours, quad biking and day trips to Cairo are exciting and educational alternatives.

Sharm el Sheikh: Tourist Diving Paradise

Sharm el Sheikh is a well-developed resort city that provides luxurious accommodation, plenty of world-class restaurants and good opportunities for shopping. After a hard day’s sunbathing or scuba diving, visitors can stop by Naama Bay, which offers neon-lit bars, restaurants and cafes that come alive at sunset (be sure to try the local seafood specialities). Visitors can stroll along the main Sultan Qaboos Street and enjoy the warm, desert evening air.

There’s another reason Sharm el Sheikh attracts visitors from all over the world, however. Dive sites near this Red Sea city are varied and plentiful, while dive centres are well-equipped to provide equipment and guidance to visitors keen to discover the secrets of the Red Sea. Popular sites include Ras Ghamila, Ras Nasrani, The Gardens and Ras Bob.

Hurghada - A Lively Red Sea Resort

Another big tourist centre on the Red Sea Riviera is Hurghada, situated idyllically close to the sea and serviced by the newly renovated Hurghada International Airport. Although it attracts yachtsmen, scuba divers, sailors and swimmers, the city is filled with all kinds of entertainment seekers, from gamblers to nature lovers to traditional belly dancers.

Also providing excellent dive sites such as Abu Nuhas, Careless Reef, Giftun Seghir and Shaab Um Gamar, Hurghada suits all kinds of aquatic sportsmen, including sailboarders and yachtsmen.

Hurghada’s tax-free shopping emporium in Dahar presents excellent opportunities for bargain shopping, where visitors can buy Egyptian cotton, leather, perfume and jewellery in between relaxing on sun-drenched beaches.
