El Quseir holidays are a jewel in the Red Sea Riviera’s crown, with turquoise waters lapping against golden, palm-straddled sands and tawny brick buildings clashing in the horizon with both the light blue of the sea and the monolithic brown of mountains overhead. You’ll be able to take a safari over the desert by jeep or camel into the rugged landscape, beautiful canyons and coral-strewn valleys. Or take a boat ride along the coast, spotting the whale sharks, dolphins and rays surfacing majestically out of the still waters.

Things To Do on El Quseir Holidays

Although El Quseir holidays are mainly the haunt of families and diving enthusiasts eager to explore the giant offshore reefs, there are some great day trips to be had. Your holidays to El Quseir wouldn't be complete without visiting the inland quarry of Wadi Hammamat, with ruins and rock inscriptions dating before 4000 BCE, and Bir Umm Fawakhir, the sixth-century Byzantine gold mines in the Eastern Desert. Sandwiched directly between the great resorts of Marsa Alam and Hurghada, you’re under two hours away from Roman ruins, ancient churches and National Parks.


For explorers eager to get to grips with local life while on holidays in El Quseir, there is a Bedouin village nearby, the 'true' El Quseir, where this once-nomadic tribespeople can show off their tips for desert survival and camel riding. Trips to Marsa Alam, under an hour away, will find you exploring the colourful markets and bazaars along the old town, not to mention going on a cruise down the legendary Nile, and Hurghada affords you the chance in February to witness the rollicking fortnight-long carnival.


Most of the bars around El Quseir are to be found in the great hotels along the seafront, which are open late and serve all manner of great food and drink, amidst dance shows and music. Party animals can venture into Hurghada for a taste of some of that resort’s eclectic nightlife, but for a truly tranquil time, visit the Top of The Rock Bar directly over the shore at the Moevenpick Resort, the best place to chill for a romantic evening at sunset, cocktail in hand.
