Pyramids, beaches, ancient ruins, cocktails; Egypt holidays are full of meeting points ancient and modern, and you will love it. Egypt has been offering tourists tailor-made breaks for years, and the locals really know how to make you feel welcome. Egypt holidays are really popular with those looking to grab some much-needed winter sun, when the UK weather is just too grey to bear. But it’s equally as popular with families making the most of the long summer school holidays. Whenever you decide to go, we recommend setting yourself up at one of the beautiful coastal beach resorts and taking day trips to the wealth of sights that Egypt holidays have to offer.
Explore the sand dunes by buggy, take a bus trip to the Pyramids, or go diving in some of the world’s most famous and breath-taking underwater spots. Of course, holidays in Egypt are also about total relaxation, with most resorts offering both seaside and poolside options for lounging and swimming from morning to evening. And you’ll find a great selection of restaurants offering local delicacies, including Halawa – a sweet snack made from sesame seed paste, and Kushari – a tomato, lentil and chickpea pasta, and international foods such as burgers and pizzas, which should keep kids (and even fussy adults!) happy.
