Egypt stretches across North Africa into Southwest Asia amongst the Mediterranean and Red Sea. Egypt holidays offer a mixture of holiday opportunities with popular hot beach holidays in Sharm El Sheikh to cultural offerings from its rich heritage.
If you are looking for a beach holiday then the glittering Red Sea to the East of Egypt is a great choice with the popular resorts of Sharm El Sheikh offering a hot climate with golden sand beaches and watersports. In addition to this a camel ride and safari trips are available if you want to get away from the beach. If you are interested in scuba diving then the Red Sea is famous for this and offer some excellent spots. Enter technicolour heaven at reefs like Tiran and Ras Mohammed which are renowned as being two of the best spots. Both are just two hours away from Sharm El Sheikh by boat, and your family will be stunned by the sight of enormous schools of barracudas and sharks that swim past on the way.
Egypt holidays aren't just about beaches and diving though. The first stop for culture vultures should be Cairo and the breath-taking Pyramids of Giza, which become spectacularly illuminated at night. A Nile Cruise is an excellent way to travel between the ancient cities while on an Egypt holiday, with luxury liners taking you through the Valley of Kings in Luxor to the peaceful haven of Aswan in the south.
The weather in Egypt is hot all year round and a perfect winter sun destination, if you like the heat then May to August are when it is at its hottest but if you like it cooler and perhaps want to travel about head over in the winter months.
