Sophisticated Soma Bay Holidays
In view of continued unrest and the evolving political situation in Egypt, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) advise against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai and all but essential travel to the rest of Egypt except for resorts on the Red Sea in South Sinai and those resorts on the Egyptian mainland in Red Sea governorate (including Hurghada). Please check the DFA website for more information.
With its beautiful white-washed beaches and shimmering blue seas, you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’d been transported into paradise on Soma Bay holidays. The perfect destination for those seeking excellent cuisine, luxurious hotels and endless sunshine, this part of Egypt offers all the above and more. Whether you’re more akin to action and adventure or you’re looking for a spot of rest and relaxation, this beachside town will immerse you in its captivating atmosphere and spectacular surroundings – what’s more, it’s just a short jaunt from the popular resort of Sharm El Sheikh, where you’ll find everything from wind-surfing to scuba-diving.
Beyond the sea
It’s no surprise that the main focus of holidays to Soma Bay is likely to be its glimmering coastline. Located at the edge of the iconic Red Sea, these beautiful beaches offer sandy spots for sunbathing as well as an array of adrenaline-fuelling activities. With glorious year-round sunshine guaranteed to get you that enviable Egyptian glow, there’s no better place to land your beach towel. If you’re bored of the beach and craving something more exciting, Hurghada is a great day trip option. Those that find themselves wanting to explore everything the sea has to offer will enjoy this prime diving spot, with striking ancient shipwrecks to uncover. Culture vultures shouldn’t hesitate to venture further out too – a cruise down the River Nile is a must when visiting Egypt, while the iconic Pyramids of Giza provide an excellent photo stop for the holiday album.
