Best beaches in Egypt

We really can’t say enough good stuff about beach breaks in Egypt. From fine white sand to beachfront bars, you just can’t go wrong with the sun, sea and sand here. And, oh, the water... To say taking a dip in the Red Sea is heavenly doesn’t even begin to do it justice. Trying snorkelling or scuba diving will also reveal the colourful coral reefs and shining shoals of fish hidden below the waves. From the sheltered Makadi Bay in Hurghada to Sharm El Sheikh’s breathtaking Nama Bay, brochure pictures and Instagram snaps just don’t hold a candle to the beauty of these sandy stretches. Many resorts in Egypt offer private beach areas, too.

Winter sun holidays to Egypt

Dodge the dark nights at home and book a winter sun escape to Egypt. You can squeeze in some sun before the festivities in December, or brighten up the New Year with a beach break in January or February, not to mention getting away from it all over Christmas. We’ve always quite fancied celebrating in the sun, how about you?

All Inclusive holidays to Egypt

Book. Fly. Enjoy. It really is that simple when you opt for an All Inclusive break. That’s because you’re food, drinks and fun are all ready and waiting for you when you check in – you don’t have to lift a finger because it’s all arranged for you. From mouthwatering buffet spreads to special a la carte menus, there’s something for everyone when you go all in with On the Beach.

Family holidays to Egypt

When it comes to family holidays, all that matters is that you’re together. Except when it comes to the hotel you choose, the nearby attractions and the quality of the beach… We get it, don’t worry; family time is lovely, but to really make it special can take a lot of planning. That’s where we come in. Our family breaks to Egypt are full of fun for the little ones and really relaxing for the grown-ups – what more could you want? You could even bag a great value getaway during the school holidays.

With its calendar split into two seasons - summer and winter - Egypt has no time for autumn and spring; although the winters here are not as we know them. One thing’s for sure - Egypt holidays are always hot! Sizzling temperatures in July and August see the thermometer soaring into the 40s during the highs of the summer season, although the temperature stays in the 20s during the gorgeous winter season - perfect for sunbathing and dipping in the sea. Some areas of Egypt can go years without seeing a drop of rain - so leave that brolly in Britain!
