Holidays to Marsa Alam will never be dull and thanks to its slowly developing tourism trade you will not find its sandy beaches and sunny climes to be oversaturated with fellow travellers.
Marsa Alam holidays are ideal for people who love their diving and the location on the coast of the Red Sea is a key contributor to this fact. The waters are not packed with people and boats so it is easy to enjoy the underwater paradise without distraction and just a few miles out to sea you will find the Elphinstone area in which marine life of all shapes and sizes can be found.
Marsa Alam International Airport only opened in 2001, but it is already established as the best way to get to the resort and Marsa Alam flights head off from many countries around the world. The length of your journey to your resort will differ depending on its location, but expect to spend no more than an hour on the road if you have chosen one of the more popular hotels. The road links are good enough for car rental in Marsa Alam.
Marsa Alam holidays are all about relaxation and luxury, but that does not mean that it is impossible to find cheap holidays in Marsa Alam, because there are all-inclusive options for those on a budget. The top of the line hotels often own their own stretch of sandy beach for privacy and some even have dedicated diving areas complete with coral reefs which are only open to paying customers.
