For divers, there is a huge amount on offer in Egypt and all
within easy reach of the UK for a one-week holiday or even shorter
break. Sharm El Sheikh is probably the best known destination on
the Red Sea and, while crowds are now an issue (especially in the
water), it still offers some world-class diving and if you know
where to stay, some incredible hotels. Away from the Sinai
Peninsula there are lesser known and therefore lesser crowded spots
that also offer spectacular diving.
Dive amongst marauding jacks and barracuda schools in the
Straits of Tiran or head to the Ras Mohamed National Park for
larger pelagics and healthy coral reefs. Whatever your dive
demands, we can arrange the perfect Egyptian diving holiday.
Egypt has long been a favourite of ours for both dive holidays
and everything on land too, and we recommend Cairo itself for a day
or two, despite the bedlam, because our excellent guides can show
you the edited highlights among the 120,000 relics in the vast
Egyptian Museum or arrange sedate sailing trips on elegant felucca
yachts along the Nile. We also couldn't mention Egypt and not
dedicate a moment to the iconic pyramids and the Sphinx at Giza.
Egypt also has roots in the Greek, Islamic and Roman worlds and
there is much to explore in places like Alexandria and the Sinai
