Sharmed out!!, where would you advise?

Hi

Possibly one for the experts!, We have been to Egypt ten times now, Sharm several times, El Gouna, Hurghada, Plus stayed in both Cairo and Luxor (we are hooked).

But the last time we visited Sharm (18 months ago) I said never again, It has just changed so much since we first went in 2005, It is still a fantastic place for a holiday, but we prefer something more real.

And more chilled out.

My ideal holiday was staying in a Egyptian hotel on the banks of the river nile, then strolling through the back streets to a small egyptian bar and chatting with the locals. Great!!! but the snorkeling in Luxor, isn't advisible !!!!.

So can anyone suggest somewhere on the red sea, that is still pretty unspoilt,

Thanks

Check the Nuweiba forum, the two main ones are the Coral Hilton and Swisscare, but there are lots of others

My suggestion would be Marsa Alam

Haven't been to Nuwieba so can't compare, but we went to Marsa about 4 years ago when it was still pretty new, lacked infrastructure somewhat, but great for lazing and snorkelling. The airport was brilliant and sooooo friendly, security guards asking if we had enjoyed ourselves and smiling constantly!!! They stopped doing winter flights at one point, but apparently Thompson are now operating on a Wednesday direct again, so no more transfer from Hurghada.

Another vote for Marsa Alam. There are not many hotels here, you can literally drive 10 miles from one to the next in some places. Also fantastic snorkelling, we have seen our one and only manta ray in Marsa plus there is Abu Dabab beach where you can snorkel with green turtles!
