Though the sun, sea and sand is enough to keep you in a sedated state of relaxation for the entirety of your stay, Egypt holidays offer so much more across the beauty of the Red Sea and throughout the historical landmarks of this great country.
Though the pyramids, tombs and statues are the first things that come to mind when you think about Egypt, the holiday resorts found along the coast of the Red Sea have been built to cater for the modern tourist.
Sharm el Sheikh, Marsa Alam and Hurghada all provide great beachside settings to enjoy the coastal surroundings while Luxor offers the opportunity to experience the history by the River Nile.
Whether you're on the hunt for the cultural settings of Luxor, scuba opportunities in the Red Sea or beach bliss on golden sands, holidays to Egypt can offer it all under temperatures that stay hot throughout the year.
Everything you need to enjoy a holiday in the sunshine is provided by the beach city of Hurghada. With a terrific portfolio of hotels, an array of phenomenal beaches and plenty of activities to choose from both on and off land, this resort has it all.
Between the marina, town centre and the old town further north there are terrific options when it comes to dining and shopping. Enjoy local delights or international favourites as tourists are offered both.
The nightlife here is no slouch either as many bars and lounges host casual entertainment while there are also major nightclubs that keep the party going into the early morning.
World-famous and for good reason, Luxor is home to some of Egypt's most iconic and historical attractions. With dozens of tombs hidden throughout the Valley of the Kings, ancient temples surrounding the city, and the River Nile, you'll struggle to see it all in one holiday.
You can give it your best shot though thanks to tour guides who can show you some of the highlights. You can be driven around, you can sail down the Nile or you can even take a hot air balloon ride to gain unparalleled views.
The city is also filled with terrific shopping and dining opportunities both day and night.
The newcomer to holidays along the Red Sea coastline, for the time being Marsa Alam is quieter than other beach resorts in Egypt. Experts predict that will change in the coming years as more people hear about the beauty and facilities on offer here.
There is a spectacular array of golden beaches to choose from and the majority of hotel complexes offer ideal positions right by the sands. Snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities are recommended here too as the waters hide stunning views beneath.
Outside of the hotels, this is a dry town but there are some hidden areas where tourists are encouraged to let loose.
Located on an eastern Egyptian peninsula, Sharm el Sheikh features three fantastic tourist-centric resorts. Each of the towns host beautiful beaches, great shopping opportunities as well as beautiful locations in the Red Sea that are perfect for scuba diving.
The shops and markets provide plenty of opportunities to browse handmade souvenirs or brand names within the large malls.
Nightlife is a big part of holidays to Sharm el Sheikh too with the Naama Bay clubs, Sharks Bay's SOHO Square and the family friendly entertainment of Nabq Bay. Everyone is sure to find fun both day and night in this location.
