Overview of Egypt

With thousands of years of ancient history, holidays to Egypt showcase a country best described as a living museum but there’s more to Egypt than pyramids and pharaohs. Egypt is a fantastic Red Sea destination offering luxurious resorts with pristine private beaches, gourmet restaurants and tantalising spas. The resort town of Marsa Alam sits between the sea and desert, and in-the-know divers flock here for the rich coral reefs brimming with an array of sea life. It’s also home to the five-star Royal Tulip Beach Resort, your ideal starting point for an upscale take on sun, sea and sand.

Things to do in Egypt

As well as a diving hotspot, Marsa Alam is also a well-known kite surfing destination, and the Royal Tulip Beach Resort offers kite surfing from its private beach. Whether you decide to dive or snorkel, you’re guaranteed to get close up to dugongs, dolphins and many other fascinating aquatic creatures. If you’re a nature lover, the nearby National Parks of Gebel Elba and Wadi El Gimal will more than satisfy with a selection of remarkable desert animals and a spectacular variety of birds. Step out for an evening stroll, shop for souvenirs and savour a Sakara beer along the dazzling Port Ghalib Marina or head inland and venture into the southern reaches of Egypt’s vast Eastern Desert.
