Making A Decision On A Place For Your Egyptian Break

By
Egypt is a year round holiday holiday destination with some thing for all. A few years ago, there was only a choice of only two seaside resorts; Sharm el Sheikh or Hurghada. These days, there is much more on offer to the holiday maker.

For the people looking for nightlife after a day in the sun, Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh are the places to be. In spite of this, it is really important to make sure that you are aware of where your accommodation is in relation to the heart of the resort as many of them can be several miles away. However, many places to stay do run free of charge shuttle buses or cabs are inexpensive.

For divers, just about any of the places are amazing but the Marina Lodge at Port Ghalib has the best setup for all scuba divers. The dive centre is located at the lodge and there are lots of splendid dive sites in easy reach of the day boats. Moreover, it is nowhere near as hectic as places like Sharm.

For divers with a non-diving family, the Hilton in Nuweiba is a great option. The scuba diving here is mostly shore based which means you don’t have to be away from the group for hours on end which is what happens on day boats.

For golfers, the number of choices is improving all the time but the best value is found at Taba Heights. From the fairways, you look down at the coast and 3 different nations are visible; Egypt, Israel and Jordan.Taba is also ideal for those who want to pop over to explore the Israeli vacation resort of Eilat.

For those wanting to find a restful, enjoyable holiday, El Quseir is definitely one of the quietest. The awesome self contained hotels mean you can spend your vacation in between your hotel room, dining areas, the beach and pool. El Quseir is on a stretch of coast with a variety of peaceful places such as Soma Bay, Safaga, Makadi Bay and El Gouna.

Any one of the places to stay in the region of Hurghada are a great choice for those who want to head out on day trips. Luxor with its unique treasures is a four hr bus ride away and it is also possible to take a tour to Cairo and the Pyramids by road. When selecting your holiday resort for your Red Sea holiday, there is definitely no lack of alternatives.
