What to do in Makadi Bay, Soma Bay, El Quesir and Marsa Alam

Relax! Holidays to this stretch of the Red Sea Coast are relaxing, so a stay here is ideal after a Nile cruise for a great Egypt twin centre holiday. Port Ghalib at Marsa Alam is a developing resort with plans for a variety of restaurants, bars and shops along its Corniche. There are good kids facilities and the second largest man-made swimming lagoon in the world here! El Quesir is a small, traditional town with an uncommercialised feel, while Soma Bay is a purpose-built resort with impressive golf course, and predominantly 5* hotels. Makadi Centre offers a number of shops where your haggling skills can be fine-tuned, or head to the Senzo Mall, 15 km north, for international-style shopping. Visit Egypt's historical sites at Luxor or Cairo, both of which are accessible from most of the resorts. Alternatively, head underwater for excellent snorkelling and scuba diving, or just relax in the sun!

Where to stay in Makadi Bay, Soma Bay, El Quesir and Marsa Alam

All of the resorts of the Red Sea Coast offer a range of good quality hotels, many of which are fairly new and modern, with good standards. Many hotels in this area operate on an All Inclusive basis, which works well in the quieter resorts.


Holiday ideas to Makadi Bay, Soma Bay, El Quesir and Marsa Alam

Spend a week or two relaxing on the beaches of your chosen resort along the Red Sea Coast, or combine a holiday on the beach with other areas of Egypt - combine a week’s Nile cruise with the beach, or visit Cairo, Luxor and other areas too. Due to a lack of domestic flights serving Marsa Alam airport, this resort is the trickiest to combine with other parts of Egypt.

South of Hurghada, the Red Sea coast runs for miles and miles through unspoilt scenery where the desert meets the sea. Purpose-built resorts such as Makadi Bay and Soma Bay offer quality hotels and a relaxed atmosphere, while the more traditional town on El Quesir also offers a more local side. Diving is popular in the area, or just relax on the beach or by the pool!
