A visit to Makadi Bay is the icing on the cake of any Nile cruise and stay holiday. This stunning resort ticks all the boxes – including a beautiful expanse of white sandy beach, crystal clear seas perfect for snorkelling and of course the astonishing expanse of desert to explore. Any keen golfers in your party will be delighted by the world-class course – and it goes without saying that the views from the links are to die for! With good shopping and plenty of friendly bars and restaurants, you’ll find your every need is catered for here – though if you are tempted to party the night away, the buzzing resort of Hurghada is just a short bus or taxi ride away.
Channel Lawrence of Arabia on a camel (or jeep if you prefer!) and trek into the heart of the desert and experience the unique charms of this majestic country. Stop by a traditional Bedouin camp, dine on tasty Middle Eastern meze, take a quad bike out into the dunes, and be entertained by belly dancers and snake charmers. Watching the sun set over the golden landscape is a sight you’ll never forget, and once darkness has set in you will be treated to an astonishing view of the starry night sky as you’ve never seen it before.
Red Sea Paradise
Swimming in the clear Red Sea is on many a traveller’s bucket list – and it’s acknowledged as one of the world’s finest places to snorkel. Indeed, snorkelling here is akin to exploring your own private aquarium – with shoals of exotic fish of every hue, size and shape darting among the colourful coral reef – and, if luck is on your side you may even see a dolphin! More adventurous visitors can take advantage of a number of experienced scuba diving companies who can safely introduce you to the marvels of the deeper water. Non-swimmers need not despair, as there are regular glass-bottomed-boat trips that give the most perfect view of the many glories of this underwater realm.
In short, Makadi Bay is an ideal location to experience all the best experiences that Egypt has to offer in a wonderfully tranquil location.
