If you’re looking for rest, relaxation and plenty of sunshine, you can’t beat a beach holiday in Marsa Alam. The resort has some of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in Egypt, with fine golden sand providing a pathway to the dazzling topaz waters of the Southern Red Sea.
As most of the hotels in Marsa Alam occupy sea front positions, you’re never usually more than a stone’s throw away from a glorious stretch of beach with your very own straw parasol awaiting.
With temperatures soaring above 35 degrees Celsius at the height of summer, Marsa Alam beach holidays are a great way to top up your tan.
With its Red Sea location, numerous beachside hotel resorts and year round sunshine, Marsa Alam is a tremendous destination for visitors seeking a relaxing beach holiday. Most hotels can even lay claim to their own private beach – serviced by both beach bars and restaurants, and stocked with a plentiful supply of sun loungers and parasols.
Lined with palm trees and mangroves, the beaches here are breathtakingly beautiful and bring to mind scenes of paradise. Thankfully shingle free, the sand in Marsa Alam is fine and golden – a pleasure to stroll upon barefooted at sunset when the temperature has cooled. Whether you plan on simply lazing about in the sun sipping cocktails, or trying your hand at a more energetic beach activity, you’ll struggle to find a more picturesque location to do so.
Topping up your tan is no problem regardless of when you come to visit. With temperatures soaring to above 33 degrees Celsius in the summer, then dropping to a more than healthy 22 degrees Celsius in the winter, you’ll be able to bask in 13 hours of sunshine on a daily basis.
If and when the temperature gets too much, the relief of the Red Sea is close at hand. With sea temperatures anywhere between 22-29 degrees Celsius, a sudden dip in to the crystal blue waters won’t come as a complete shock to the system either.
As Marsa Alam has so far avoided overdevelopment, you’ll struggle to find a more peaceful resort for lazing on the beach anywhere in Egypt. For regular visitors to Spain’s hectic Costa Del Sol, or even some of the busier Egyptian resorts like Sharm el Sheikh, the peaceful surroundings will be nothing short of bliss.
