There are miles of uninterrupted coastline to explore on holidays to Makadi Bay, all of it beautiful. The sands are practically white, with the sea and cloudless sky coming together in seamless azure, and at night, the illuminations of the hotels gives the bay an amazing, ethereal quality. Chances are you’ll want to while away the nights by the palms of the bay or at your hotel, but there’s always desert safaris into the Red Sea mountains for some spectacular panoramas of the coast.

Things To Do on Makadi Bay Holidays

Makadi Bay is right next to Hurghada, one of the centres of the Red Sea, meaning you can explore the Roman ruins, Maritime Museum and sail over to Giftun Island and see the open wildlife reserve and National Park. There are also some great old Coptic churches nearby with ancient libraries and murals from the last millennium tended to by monks, and the beautiful twin-towered Mosque in the town. Your holidays to Makadi Bay don't just have to be about sun, sea and sand.


The daily souk, or market, sells everything here, from local food to exotic baubles and jewellery. This is one of the Red Sea’s finest souks, with shops and even a pharmacy, so everything you need is right on your doorstep. If you come on Makadi Bay holidays in February, be sure to catch Hurghada’s International Festival, a myriad of fanfares and sport competitions. There’s always something happening in Hurghada, from January’s Grand Feast to the Coptic New Year, so your boredom threshold won’t be breached!


You’ll soon see why Makadi Bay holidays are so famed because there’s everything you could want; bars, music, dance, games rooms and so much more. If you fancy a night on the town you’ll get just that a short drive away in Hurghada. This city has everything, from nightclubs to rave away until sun-up to quaint English bars for a pint and a game of pool. El Dahar, the Old Town, is the place to go for some authentic Egyptian cuisine: okra, stewed veg and moussaka. The sights and sounds of beautiful El Gouna to the north are certainly not to me missed!
