Underwater explorers: With over 250km of coastal reefs, there’s plenty of opportunity for everyone from green-gilled snorkelers to the most seasoned divers. The crystal-clear waters are home to over 1,200 species of fish, around 120 of which are to be found nowhere else in the world, making it one of the world’s top destinations for underwater exploration.
Beach lovers: Soaking up the sun on a powder-soft sand beach is a highlight of any holiday. While all of the beaches are stunning in themselves, there are a few jewels in the country’s crown: look out for the Sunken City of the Sahl Hasheesh Bay, El Nayzak in Marsa Alam, and Soma Bay, near Hurghada.
Active types: While there are plenty of water sports for you to get involved with on your holidays to Egypt, there’s even more on offer on land! Go rock-climbing in Dahab, kayak along the Nile; head over to Cairo and you can even go skiing on an indoor slope, complete with over 7,000 tons of snow!
