General Area:

Go for all inclusive Marsa Alam holidays if you fancy an ever more fashionable beach and Red Sea holiday dive site. Marsa Alam is well positioned on the western coast of the Red Sea and is comparable to the predominant Egyptian resort of Sharm el Sheikh, mainly due to the stunning golden beaches, warm clear waters and the vicinity of superb reefs. All inclusive holidays to Marsa Alam are a somewhat recent addition to the tourist trail in Egypt and it is due to this that you will be more likely to pick up a cheap all inclusive deal that will be an especially good choice for divers looking to explore a more natural and unblemished reef.

As for hotel accommodation within Marsa Alam, there is an excellent selection of 3, 4 and even 5 star complexes with excellent facilities geared towards families and romantic couples that have an interest in diving. The recent addition of an airport during the past decade or so has made holidays in Marsa Alam an attractive option to other resorts on the Red Sea.

Whats Special:

Your holidays in Marsa Alam will be based in the area that once was home to a little fishing village. The leftovers from this are the little harbour which is the hub to a lot of restaurants, shops and entertainment spots stretching along a promenade. There is miles of dramatic reefs along the miles of the Marsa Alam coast, some of which can be reached from the shore but the bulk of them involve one of the many prearranged jaunts from a boat. There are also pre-arranged fishing trips that you can include in your Marsa Alam holiday that will involve tuna and shark fishing.

You can include a few good excursions as part of your all inclusive Marsa Alam package, a few ideas for these are as follows. There is an aquatic reserve that runs from Marsa Alam to Gebel Elba. Marsa Alam is almost 500 miles away from of Cairo, so unless on a twin centre stay it will not be feasible to visit here, but a few trips can be book to see the sight of Luxor and Aswan, which are around 150 miles from Marsa Alam. All inclusive hotels will manage and coordinate tours to ancient sites like the Pyramids and Valley of the Kings.
