What Makes Egypt a Great Place to Spend a Holiday?
Egypt is a world-class holiday destination that attracts over 12 million tourists annually. With a history spanning over 25 centuries, it’s no wonder that ancient wonders such as the Pyramids of Giza and Luxor’s sandstone temples are top of the list of must-see sites.
For tourists seeking sun, sea and sand, Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh and Marsa Alam offer clear waters perfect for scuba diving, watersports and white sandy beaches stretching for miles. In the evenings, tourists can enjoy a vibrant nightlife scene that includes cocktail bars, karaoke spots and bass-pumping nightclubs.
Sharm El Sheikh’s strip is a central hub for music concerts and foam parties, while Hurghada’s Marine Boulevard offers traditional belly-dancing shows and family-friendly seafront bars. Marsa Alam has a variety of upscale restaurants to choose from. Whether looking for daytime activities or evening entertainment, Egypt has something for everyone.
What is Egypt known for?
Egypt is a captivating nation with a rich history dating back thousands of years and is home to renowned ancient structures such as the Pyramids and the Sphinx. The Nile River has many magnificent wildlife, including rare birds like spot squacco herons, hoopoes, and formidable crocodiles. In the arid desert, visitors can witness Shiatta Gazelles and flamingos, while the vibrant coral reefs of Marsa Alam provide a habitat for mantas and dolphins. The deserts of Egypt are filled with endless outdoor adventures such as camel and horseback rides, sandboarding near Al Fayoum, and evening camps under the stars.
Hot air balloon rides offer a unique way to survey Luxor’s vast desert area and the awe-inspiring tombs. Visitors can also immerse themselves in Egypt’s vibrant traditional souqs, which are replete with colourful fabrics, unfamiliar aromas, spice stalls, and unique souvenirs. Egypt’s café culture is also worth experiencing, with countless atmospheric cafes offering the perfect backdrop to savour a cup of tea.
What are the Best Places to Visit in Egypt?
If you plan on visiting Egypt, knowing the best time to go is essential. The ideal months to visit are from October to April, as the weather is pleasant and not too hot throughout the country. This is the perfect time to explore the Pyramids of Giza and ancient tombs comfortably. Winter weather can be more excellent from October to February, with overcast skies in Cairo and the Nile Delta region. However, winters in the south remain pleasant and warm during these months. The Red Sea is also a great destination during this time, with perfect weather for sunbathing, swimming, and snorkelling. Remember that this is peak travel season, so that attractions can be crowded, and hotel prices may increase. It’s essential to book early to secure your accommodations and avoid any potential sellouts.
What are the best beaches in Egypt?
Looking for some fantastic beaches in Egypt? Here are some top picks for you to consider:
– Naama Bay in Sharm El Sheikh is the perfect spot for diving, sunbathing and playing beach sports. Don’t forget to bring your snorkel and a fun-loving attitude!
– Makadi Bay, located just outside Hurghada, is a diver’s paradise with warm waters and stunning coral reefs.
– Mahmya Island, accessible by boat from Hurghada, is an unfamiliar escape where you can swim, snorkel, enjoy a gorgeous sunset and savour delicious food at the island’s main restaurant.
– Al Nayzak, near Marsa Alam, is a unique beach created from a meteorite and one of the best in Egypt.
– Nabq Bay in Sharm El Sheikh is another beautiful beach perfect for swimming and snorkelling, with plenty of coral reefs and marine life.
– Blue Lagoon in Dahab, located in the Abu Galum National Park, is a great place to disconnect from the world and be one with nature.
And if you’re staying at one of the many resorts in Egypt, you’ll likely have access to private beaches with loungers, water sports options, and beachfront bars. Enjoy your beach vacation!
When is the Best time to visit Egypt?
Egypt is a country that is best visited between October and April. The weather is pleasant and comfortable during this time, making it an ideal time to explore the country’s famous Pyramids of Giza and ancient tombs. While the winter months of October to February can be much more relaxed with overcast skies, the south remains warm and pleasant. However, it is essential to note that temperatures can drop at night, so it is best to pack accordingly.
Red Sea Holidays
The Red Sea is also a great destination to visit during these months, providing perfect weather for sunbathing, swimming, and snorkelling. It is important to remember that this is peak travel season in the country, so attractions can be crowded. Hotel accommodations and travel prices also tend to increase during this time and sell out quickly, so booking in advance is highly recommended. The winter holiday season of Christmas and New Year, as well as Easter time, are trendy times to visit Egypt.

Sea Activities on the Red Sea Coast
Our top priority is ensuring that all our tours are accessible and enjoyable. That’s why we offer the option to stay at the stunning resorts of the Red Sea as part of our Egypt tour packages. Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada are just two of the many fantastic Red Sea resorts we include in our tours.
The Red Sea is a popular tourist destination for many reasons, including the incredible marine life. The Red Sea is a scuba diving paradise with over 200 different coral and 1,200 species of bony fish, including many endemic species.
The clear waters allow for a unique underwater experience, with the vibrant colours of the coral and marine life on full display. While bottlenose and spinner dolphins can often be seen on boat rides between dive sites, it’s less common to spot them while diving. Sha’ab El Erg in Hurghada, also known as Dolphin House, is a popular dive site where bottlenose dolphins can sometimes be seen underwater.
Spinner dolphins, known for their acrobatics, can be found relaxing at the reefs of Dolphin House in Marsa Alam.
Risso’s dolphins, which their rounded heads and short beaks can identify, are rarely seen when diving on the reefs. However, they can often be spotted in groups displaying their tail flukes in the deep water saddle between Jackson and Laguna reefs near the island of Tiran in Sharm.

Family Holidays in Egypt
The cultural heritage of ancient Egypt has long been a source of fascination for many individuals. I must confess that I am among those who find this subject captivating, and my interest in it has remained steadfast throughout the years. I have pursued a degree in Arabic language and Middle Eastern studies while at university and currently work as a travel planner for this region.
Egypt’s allure, with its pharaohs, pyramids, and hieroglyphs, presents a unique opportunity for families to come together and appreciate some of humanity’s oldest and most impressive achievements. It is a destination that transcends generations, allowing people of all ages to experience the marvels of this ancient civilisation and forge enduring memories.
Why Egypt is great for families
Egypt has been a favourite destination for travellers since ancient times, and it’s no wonder. They have an excellent infrastructure that caters to visitors’ needs, making it easy for families to find the perfect accommodation. If you’re travelling with kids, you may consider connecting or separate rooms to keep everyone comfortable. This can be a challenge in many countries, but not in Egypt. They make it simple and affordable, especially if you plan.
We understand how challenging it can be to travel with young children or big groups, so we offer extra help every step of the way. If you need assistance at the airport, we can arrange for a representative to meet you and guide you through security. Plus, you’ll always have private drivers to take you where you need to go. For larger families, we can even provide multiple vehicles. Travelling with a lot of luggage can be overwhelming, but we’re here to make it easier.
So, if you’re looking for a family-friendly destination with excellent accommodations and helpful services, Egypt is the perfect choice. Let us help you plan your trip and take care of the details so you can focus on enjoying your time with your loved ones.
Recommended family accommodation in Egypt
Egypt is a beautiful destination that has been attracting visitors since ancient times. As your helpful assistant, I can assist you in finding suitable accommodations that suit your needs. For instance, if you are travelling with your family, we can discover connecting rooms for you and your young children and separate rooms for grandparents and teenagers. This is usually challenging and expensive in other countries, but it’s much more accessible and affordable in Egypt, especially if you plan.
Moreover, we can arrange for a friendly representative to meet you at the airport and assist you every step of the way, including getting through security. We can also provide private drivers for your comfort and convenience, such as two minivans or a minibus if you travel with a large family or a lot of luggage. This extra help can make your international journey with children or a big group much smoother. We are here to support you and ensure a stress-free and enjoyable trip to Egypt.
Cairo for families: where to stay and what to do
When planning a family trip to Egypt, starting in the bustling city of Cairo is essential. The Marriot Mena House is an excellent option for families as it offers unparalleled views of the Great Pyramid. Enjoy your morning tea on your balcony while taking in the renowned silhouette. Furthermore, the hotel has plenty of adjoining rooms and a lovely pool, perfect for families.
If you prefer a more central location or want to save money, the Kempinski Nile Hotel is another excellent option. Although the views might not be as spectacular, you can still enjoy the captivating sight of the Nile lit up at night.
During your stay in Cairo, you’ll have the same guide who will get to know you and your family, making catering to everyone’s interests and physical needs easier. A visit to Giza, Saqqara, and Dahshur to see multiple generations of pyramids is necessary. Your private guide can explain their evolution throughout history. The Egyptian Museum is also a great option to see relics, including those found in Tutankhamun’s tomb. If you want to know the country’s collection of mummies, you’ll have to visit the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization.
For families who want to experience modern-day Cairo, a food tour is a great way to do so. Egyptian cuisine is underrated, and koshari is a must-try dish. Ta’ameya, Egypt’s answer to falafel, is a simple yet delicious snack you can enjoy while walking around the city.
If anyone in the family is interested in less-ancient history, a tour that includes churches, synagogues, mosques, and the Coptic part of the city can be arranged. For those who aren’t interested, there’s always the option to relax at the hotel and enjoy the pool or visit the Khan el-Khalili market, a bustling souq in the heart of historic Cairo.
Aswan for families: where to stay and what to do
Once you arrive in Cairo, a quick flight will take you to Abu Simbel, where you can explore the temples that look out over Lake Nasser. It’s hard not to be awed by the sheer size of these temples carved into the rock. The temples are a testament to the grand ambitions of Ramses II, who commissioned their construction. If you have family members who remember the 1960s, they might recall when these temples were saved from being submerged in the lake formed by the Aswan High Dam.
After you visit Abu Simbel, head to Aswan to unwind in this charming, peaceful town. I would recommend staying at the Mövenpick Aswan despite its unremarkable exterior. The interior is beautiful, and the atmosphere is laid-back and relaxed. It’s an excellent place for children (and adults) to take a breather before embarking on a cruise. The hotel is situated right in the middle of the Nile, on Elephantine Island, providing stunning views. Children will love the experience of taking a felucca, a small boat, to their hotel.
If you’re looking for a low-key day, relax by the pool or stroll down to the Nubian Museum. Aswan is a town that’s easy to navigate, and the museum is well-marked in English. If you’re interested in a guided tour, I recommend visiting the Nubian village to learn more about the fascinating culture that’s been so well-preserved. The town is an excellent option for a guided tour if it’s not a Friday.
Family cruises on the Nile
A Nile cruise is a beautiful option if you’re planning a family trip and want to enjoy the sights without the hassle of constantly unpacking. You can take it at your own pace and explore temples, tombs, and beautiful landscapes. A three-night cruise is perfect, but you can also choose a more leisurely experience.
Choosing the correct ship is essential, especially for families. I suggest the MS Sonesta St George or the MS Sonesta Sun Goddess. The former has a vintage style, while the latter is newer and more luxurious. Both offer numerous amenities, such as evening entertainment like belly dancing. You’ll also enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and family suite options. The cabins are spacious, with fewer visitors on any given tour.
And the sights are truly breathtaking! You’ll visit the Aswan Dam, Philae Temple, the temples at Kom Ombo, and Edfu, where you can see mummified crocodiles. Your journey ends in Luxor, where you can explore the East Bank and see Karnak, the Temple of Luxor, and the West Bank, home to the hidden tombs of ancient kings, queens, and commoners alike.
These are the same sights that have attracted people for over 4,000 years. Standing amidst such ancient grandeur is genuinely awe-inspiring. Take one of the ship’s engaging and knowledgeable Egyptologists to help you understand the history behind the blank-faced statues and sarcophaguses. However, if you have a more prominent family or prefer flexibility, you can hire a private guide, which I can arrange for you.
After a busy week of touring and exploring, you and your family might be ready for some relaxation. In that case, I recommend spending a few nights at the Mövenpick Resort El Quseir in the Red Sea. The rooms are modern and bright, with beautiful teal accents against the white and natural wood. The resort has seven dining options that appeal to picky young eaters or those seeking a romantic dinner for two.
The resort is right on a crescent of white-sand beach and overlooks the stunning blue waters of the Red Sea. The Red Sea is home to thriving coral reefs, and the house reef extends to the swimming area. You can go snorkelling among the colourful fish and coral, or the resort can arrange a boat trip to more distant reefs. And if anyone in your family loves diving, the Red Sea is one of the best-kept secrets in the diving world.
