Top 5 must Dos in Makadi Bay suggestions please!

Hey guys,

As a 30th Birthday present I have been treated to a weeks holiday at Stella Makadi Bay from my lovely man!!

I was just trying to get a list of must see's/Do/s/ Try's together to make the most of the week we are there.

Any suggestions more than welcome and much appreciated.

Thanks all.

Happy holidays!

Shelley

Hey Shelley

Do a day trip to Luxor.

Visit downtown Hurghada and try out your bartering skills!

Do a snorkelling day trip

Spend an evening in El Gouna.

Eat Om Ali for desert

Luxor would be my main one, great day out, especially if you have never been to Egypt before :)

If you choose to go to Hurghada try to get to the Cacao Bar.

This vid was taken early in the day, at night the place is "buzzing"

Great place for people watching.

I would also say go to Luxor for a day or even an overnight two day trip if you can spare this amount of time during your week.

Diving or snorkelling at Gotu Abu Ramada (an hours boat ride from Makadi Bay)

Stargazing in the desert for a night

Whatever you do, enjoy it.

Try sail a cat trip for half day goes from pier by Tia heights must be booked in advance two snorkelling stops and the cat is beautiful and if you get to use the mainsail it is wondful. Glass bottom boat sunset trip, short bout 3 hours glass bottom boat very ordinary but you get to stop and swim in a turquoise blue lagoon that is only bout 2 foot deep but about half mile from shore!! Weird and wonderful experience and the sunsetting over the mountains is classic Egyptian scene and very beautiful. Snorkelling from the fort arabesque beach is second to none in the bay, you won't be allowed to use the sun beds there but the sea is free for all. luxour def worth visit and if you can run to it do two days there is so much to see and the Karnak sound an light show is wonderful. Sure you will have a wonderful trip and become Egyptofiles like the rest of us!!, have fun.

Hi I love a mooch around shops and I've read on Thomas cook site that there is makadi souk, shops and bars, is this true and how far from fort arabesque?

If there are shops are they all bartering ones or are there fixed price shops near bye?
