    Sharm el Sheikh'sNa'ama Bay area is set back slightly from the rest of this area of coastline, meaning its gleaming waters tend to be even more tranquil than elsewhere. It's long arc of sun-bleached sand faces roughly southeast, and is surrounded by some of the area's best hotels, restaurants, and nightlife.

    One of the main tourist spots in the region, Na'ama Bay is popular with… read more »

    Lying on the eastern coast of the Sinai Peninsula, Dahab Lagoon has made a name for itself in the scuba diving world.

    Agiba Beach gets its name from the Arabic for "miracle". It lies on Egypt's Mediterranean Sea coast just west of the town of Marsa Matrouh. Set back in a small cove, the near white sands are trapped between cliffs on all sides. In fact, access to the beach is via a footpath down from the clifftop, making it unsuitable for very young children and those… read more »

    Fjord Bay is located roughly ten miles south of Taba on the Sinai Peninsula, close to the northernmost tip of the Gulf of Aqaba and the border crossing with Eilat, Israel. Largely unknown to those outside of the region, the bay is formed from a narrow inlet of the Red Sea reminiscent of a fjord. Its shallows end with a band of richly-coloured sands.

    Marsa Alam is the most southerly resort town on Egypt's Red Sea Riviera. This means it has excellent year-round weather, and some of the most consistent temperatures of any of Egypt's beaches.

    When it comes to beaches, Marsa Alam has somewhere in the region of 30 miles of largely untouched sand. Beside it you'll find a crop of high-end hotels, while well-regarded restaurants can be found… read more »
