Egypt is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Having a title like this probably leads you to have a pretty large expectation. Thankfully Egypt has some pretty nice beaches and will allow you to bring the best out of your holiday. Some names below you might have heard of, and others might be alien to you. However we can guarantee you that these are some of the best around.
Sharm el Sheikh Beach
Sharm El Sheikh Beach is known as one of the most popular beaches in the whole of Egypt. Located off the red sea this spot has a whole host of activities that you can take part in. One of the most popular activities along the coast is diving with a very attractive shoreline of deep water and marine life that many people explore in.
The long golden sandy stretches are perfect for long walks or simply relaxing in the midst of the sun. There are many miles that can be explored here and the Sharm El Sheikh Beach has some of the best bays. A couple that deserve mentioning include the Naama Bay with the other one being Sharm Al Maya.
Located further south of the Sharm El Sheikh Beach, the Hurghada beach is another spectacular beach near the red sea. Along the coastline of the Hurghada beach there are plenty of top hotels as well as top restaurants. Besides sunbathing and long walks along the beach you can get involved in activities that take place within the beach such as diving and boat fishing.
Hurghada is known as one of the party towns that brings amazing nightlife to that in Egypt. There are various clubs located along the coast which will keep you occupied. One of these is called Papa’s Beach Club which has some of the best nightlife around and will give you something to do on the beach when the sun goes down.
Near the Sinai Peninsula and situated between the mountains of the Sinai and the Red Sea. The Dahab beach offers some spectacular views and makes for some great sightseeing.
As well as the great sights it’s a great place for a relaxing visit. Since Dahab is a small town you shouldn’t be affected by the large traffic in comparison to some of Egypt’s other beaches. This small town is constantly growing and new things are added as time goes on. However, as of now it’s a great spot to head to for a quiet break.
Another beach that is located near the Sinai Peninsula, Nuweiba is a beach that is still underdeveloped in the sense it hasn’t transformed into a massive holiday destination. For its exclusion from the mainstream has meant that it’s a great choice for a relaxing holiday.
Most of the hotels that are situated here are quite modern as they have been recently built. Along with the modern hotels you can have a go at diving and snorkelling. Most of the diving and snorkelling can be found at Ras Shaitan which is also known as the Devils Head.
Since it’s underdeveloped it’s a great location for cheap Egypt holidays but still provides amazing entertainment value.
Travel to any of these beaches in Egypt and prepare to be occupied with the sun, activities and great sights.
