Holidays to Marsa Alam


Marsa Alam may not be as bustling as some of the other Red Sea resorts, but it is well on its way to being Egypt’s next seaside holiday hotspot. With stunning beaches, stylish hotels on the rise, and some of the most exquisite dive spots you will ever lay eyes on, it’s no wonder more and more people are choosing to escape the crowds and holiday in Marsa Alam.

What to see and do on a Holiday to Marsa Alam

Scuba divers in the know head to Marsa Alam for the unspoilt coral reefs and abundance of mesmerising marine life here. Abu Dabab beach is the spot to go to see quirky sea turtles and the massive Dugong, which are often called sea cows. If it’s sharks you are after, head to the Elphinstone Reefs, where you can see a variety of shark species as well as barracuda and tuna slipping in and out of the caves along the reef wall. Samadai Reef is a well-known dolphin hangout, and features stunning columns of coral and a shallow lagoon.

Marsa Alam Holidays

For those who prefer a more low-key day on the sands, Marsa Alam will not disappoint. The beaches here are seldom crowded, and feature soft golden sand, clear blue waters, and gentle sea breezes. You can bronze your body on a sun lounger under the vast blue skies, nap under a parasol next to the sea, or grab a snorkel and search for turtles, crocodile fish, octopuses, and starfish.

Visitors on a holiday to Marsa Alam will also find plenty to do within the hotels and resort itself. Take a stroll through the streets of this tranquil town to chat with the friendly locals and stop at small shops selling local products. Spend the day sunbathing by the pool, before heading down to the hotel bar for pre-dinner cocktails. End the day with a fabulous dinner of tasty mezze such flat bread and baba ganoush, followed by a main course of freshly grilled seafood or lamb.
