Where to Stay
While there is no shortage of 5-star hotels through Egypt, for definitive privacy and adventure we recommend mixing up land time with some time aboard a private yacht.
When to Go
To avoid the pressing heat of summer aim for September to April. Sunbathe on the shores of the Red Sea from March but dive all year round.
