RED SEA GETAWAY
Egypt’s Red Sea coast runs from the Gulf of Suez to the Sudanese border. Its mineral-rich red mountain ranges inspired the mariners of antiquity to name the sea “Mare Rostrum” or the Red Sea. The Red Sea is comparatively sheltered and calm; its currents are gentle and regular, its tides almost non-existent and its temperature warm and steady. It is dotted with pristine beaches and coral reefs; fringed by ancient ports teeming with underwater life and a rich maritime history which stretches back to Pharaonic times. Sunbathers can relax on white sandy beaches or find shade in the mangrove lagoons that line the coast while snorkelers explore the reefs. The underwater wonder of the Red Sea remains a living tapestry of vibrant coral and exotic fish, waiting for you to discover its secrets. Thousands of migrating birds are attracted to the Red Sea shores, making it a paradise for bird-watchers. If you just want to relax, love the sun or would like to get your feet wet… choose a Red Sea getaway!
The simplicity of sun, sea and sand! The beauty of a rugged coastline and a stunning mountain range surrounds Sharm-el-Sheikh on the Sinai Peninsula. Pristine beaches (some private) offer comfortable amenities such as chairs, shades and even bars. Sharm-el-Sheikh is famous for its magical underwater world of turtles, sharks, pelagic fish and wrecks. Rich coral reefs provide some of the most exquisite diving sites on the planet; much of the marine life is unique only to these waters. Sharm-el-Sheikh is one of the prime entertainment destinations on the Red Sea with casinos, nightclubs and bars. The mall provides shops with both foreign and local products, including jewelry, leather goods, clothing, pottery and books. There is something for everyone in Sharm-el-Sheikh: snorkeling, swimming, windsurfing and other water sports; horse and camel riding, desert safaris and excursions to Mount Sinai where Moses discovered the Ten Commandments. The 18-hole Championship Golf Course located only 5km from most hotels has introduced a new dimension to this fantastic destination.
