I have written a few short stories of our trips to Egypt (Hurghada, Sharm el-Sheikh and Port Ghalib) as well as posted a few posts about the superb and fantastic underwater world in the Red Sea.
Egypt has some terrific places for anyone interested in an exotic culture, sun bathing, swimming, snorkeling and diving.
ps. to enlarge the photos, click on them.
At the moment there are vacation flights from Finland to Hurghada and Marsa Alam. Sharm el-Sheikh is also a very popular and interesting area. We have been there once. I can recommend to visit it. At the moment there are though no flights from Finland to Sinai area. Hopefully there will be some in the near future.
We have fallen in love with Intercontinental The Palace Port Ghalib Resort -hotel some years ago. The perfect beach (private beach), the coral reefs, the sunny weather, the hotel, the friendly staff, the fabulous food, the sunsets, the splendid rooms and suites – everything.
The hotel beach is spacious and you can relax and enjoy the views.
You can also enjoy the wonderful swimming pools. A few of them are huge.
It is so true what the hotel’s social media posts say:
We know there will be days when you want nothing more than to laze by the pool as the soft breeze rustles through the palms … or gaze out over the waters of the Red Sea, which sparkle in the unbroken warmth of the sun all year round.
And if you like a unique and enriching wellness experience, you will be thrilled with the award winning six senses spa at the hotel.
I also recommend warmly to try snorkeling or diving, which ever you prefer. This beach is great, because you can actually snorkel and dive in right from the beach. You don’t have to travel far, unless you want to.
In the harbour, there are boats, which take you out to the sea on diving trips. There are also seascope submarines.
Those who want to enjoy shopping, a cup of coffee or a nice dinner, can stroll to Port Ghalib harbour, which is a nice place.
So, in a few words, what are you waiting for?
Make a reservation and go enjoy a perfect holiday!
