The golden sands are stunning and perfect for relaxing on, or you could capture some traditional Egyptian life in the old town by feasting your eyes on the beauty of the mosques and bazaars that scatter the streets. Chill out in a shisha café in the new town or shop in one of the classy boutiques.
El Gouna
Snorkel in Zeytouna Beach, spend your money in the marina or dine at one of the delicious culinary spots. This great stretch of the Red Sea Riviera would make an ideal day trip, no matter what you're hoping to find.

Things to Do

Dive in the Red Sea
As the most northernmost tropical sea, the Red Sea is the easiest to get to from the UK and is home to an array of fish, coral and underwater critters for you to swim amongst. Enter another world and head for The Sunken City, a particular highlight, which is a massive replica of an ancient temple, sitting underwater at the end of a pier. There are plenty of dive schools on hand if you need to be shown the ropes, ensuring that you're not alone for your first venture into the depths of the Red Sea.
Hang Out on the Beach after Dark
With plenty of beach parties and evening barbecues, the beaches don't go to sleep when the sun does in Sahl Hasheesh. Even after the sun has set beyond the horizon, there's plenty to enjoy on the sands. However, if you'd prefer to head to a proper club, world-class DJs have been known to frequent the resort with their non-stop beats and party vibes.
Watch the Desert Sunset
Watch the sun go down in this magical place and you will truly understand the beauty of the sun setting behind the horizon. You can even enjoy a romantic meal with your other half as the sun sets on another day.
