Recreation and Entertainment in Egypt

Beach Holiday

Almost all of the resorts presented in Egypt are great for a beach holiday. Temperatures are high throughout the year and the sea remains warm.

Tourists can enjoy the best sandy beaches in Alexandria and Makadi Bay. In Hurghada, gently sloping beaches adjoin artificially deepened lagoons. The beaches of Sharm el-Sheikh and Naama Bay are called “conditionally sandy”: special areas have been cleared for swimming, in other places there is an abundance of corals. See toppharmacyschools for geography, climate and cuisine in Egypt.


The resorts of Egypt attract fans of traveling through the endless expanses of the desert in jeeps or camels, as well as fans of water sports.

Diving is one of the most popular entertainment in Egypt. Diving enthusiasts from different countries are attracted by the most beautiful flora and fauna of the Red Sea, which is practically untouched by civilization. The largest and most popular dive sites and dive centers are located in the resorts of Marsa Alam, Safaga, Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh. Fans of kite and windsurfing
often go to Egypt. The most suitable resorts for practicing this sport are Hurghada and Dahab with their windy climate. Also the resorts of Egypt
offer dives into the water column in special capsules with portholes (for example, in Hurghada), or trips on a boat with a transparent bottom. And yacht trips in the most picturesque places will not leave anyone indifferent.

In Nuweiba, there is a rare opportunity to swim with tamed dolphins on a special beach.


Egypt is a country with a rich centuries-old history. Therefore, lovers of antiquities will have the opportunity to visit many local attractions with excursions.

The largest centers of ancient Egyptian history, where thousands of tourists flock every year, are the cities of Cairo, Luxor and Alexandria, although there is always something to see in other cities.

Cairo itself is replete with architectural monuments and museums.

The tomb of Tutankhamun was also found here. In Luxor, it is also worth visiting the temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the funerary temple of the god Amun-Ra.

In Alexandria, tourists can also find a number of unique attractions. First of all, this is the Kite Bay Fort, built in the 15th century on the site of the legendary Pharos lighthouse. It is impossible not to look at the colossal Library of Alexandria.

A number of resorts in Egypt offer their visitors conditions for healing and personal care.
