The Red Sea: a holiday destination nestled between Africa and Asia, famed for its diving, watersports and spectacular scenery.

Sounds good, yes? Here are a ways you can be active on your Red Sea holiday...

Dive. Egypt offers over 500 year-round warm water diving sites. Red Sea Holidays offers a range of diving opportunities for beginners and experienced divers in Sharm el Sheikh, Hurghada, Makadi Bay and El Gouna. Red Sea Holidays offers ‘learn to dive’ packages and the opportunity to earn a PADI Open Water certificate.

Kitesurf. Kitesurfing is a popular watersport in the Red Sea. Kitesurfing combines aspects of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing, paragliding and gymnastics – making it a hobby for the extremely active! Hurghada is one of the top destinations for Kitesurfing – offering dedicated shallow areas for beginners and separate launch areas for experts. It takes just four days to become an independent Kitesurfer, the perfect challenge to add to your holiday

Climb Mount Sinai. Red Sea Holidays offers excursions to St Catherine’s Monastery and Mount Sinai from £39 per person. Mount Sinai is a 2,285 metre high mountain, 230km from Sharm el Sheikh – where Moses received the 10 commandments. There are two principal routes to the summit; Siket El Bashait takes about 2.5 hours on foot, though camels can be used. The steeper route, Siket Sayidna Musa, is up the 3,750 steps in the ravine behind the monastery. Travellers can enjoy the desert sunrise before climbing in Moses’ footsteps.

Enjoy an off-road adventure. The desert plains and mountain scenery around Sharm el Sheikh, Makadi Bay and Hurghada are ideal for Quad Biking. Red Sea Holidays offers Quad Biking excursions from £29 per person and All-Terrain Vehicle adventures from £43 per person

Ride a camel. Red Sea Holidays offers a Bedouin feast and stargazing excursion from £33 per person. Holidaymakers can experience life with the Bedouin of the Sinai on this trip from Sharm el Sheikh. Travellers can ride a camel through the desert before enjoying an authentic Bedouin meal followed by an evening of stargazing
