A trip to the Red Sea resorts may be just what you need if you're in search of some sun, sand, and relaxation. Based on factors like accessibility to beaches, tourist attractions, and comfortable accommodations, Sada Elbalad English (SEE) compiled a list of the best places to visit in the Red Sea for a getaway.
Sharm El Sheikh
Why Go To Sharm Elsheikh?
Touristic sites, tasty cuisine, and a lively cultural scene can all be found in Sharm. But most often it's the beauty and versatility of its mountains and bays that draw travelers from afar. Do you like to party in the sand? Are you looking for safe, shallow waters where your kids can play? Would you be interested in exploring the Red Sea deep? This paradise in Naama Bay can be covered with one long beach for every day of the year.
Save your breaks from the sand and sun for the go-to sights of Sharm; its Dahab and Nuweiba have a more relaxed, less touristy feel.
If you do venture to Sharm's attractions, you'll find that the panoramic view from Sinai Heights. That will just make your sightseeing trips all the more pleasant – you'll have fewer people to wrestle with as you uncover some of this coastal city's hidden charm.
El Gouna, unspoiled Hurghada has a growing fan base. Some of its vacationers are ping lovers, letting loose at the springtime El Gouna Festival, or adrenaline junkies, testing their limits climbing Gabal Sha'ib El Banat mountain and ping in the red sea as well as navigating the islands, and zip-lining through its Nature reserves. Others are honeymooners, unwinding on one of the Orange island's chalky beaches or holing up in one of its isolated resorts.
But what if you don't fall into any of these categories? Don't worry: Hurghada can't be cited as any "type" of Red sea vacation. Moreover, you also don't have to spend a lot of money (its reputation as a luxurious hideout is only somewhat warranted). To discover some of its gorgeous islands' indescribable charms, you'll have to visit for yourself. Start your mornings basking in an orange-tinted El Mamsha sunrise then round out your evenings at evening dance parties along Geftoun Islet.
Geftoun and Orange islands have the perfect antidote for your hectic lifestyle; blindingly white sand fringed by shimmering azure water, colorful coral reefs, crispy conch fritters, and a sleepy, lighthearted atmosphere. These beautiful islands hold tight to their reputation as an exclusive and secluded getaway. Regular vacationers to these skinny strips of alabaster sand will tell you that they wouldn't have it any other way.
