Egypt's Red Sea ticks the boxes for families

27th Feb 2013

Sun-seeking families could do a lot worse than consider a trip to Egypt's Red Sea region this summer, according to a new study.

Recent research from Orascom Hotels & Developments showed more than two-thirds of Red Sea tourists chose the region because of its guaranteed sunshine.

Around one in three travellers chose Red Sea destinations because of its excellent value for money, with 44% choosing resorts such as El Gouna and Taba Heights.

Sharm-el-Sheikh remains a particular Red Sea favourite of British holidaymakers, who are attracted by around ten hours of sunshine and average summer temperatures of 35C.

Nestled between Africa and Asia, the Red Sea peninsula is perfect for those looking to alleviate the winter blues and top up their levels of vitamin D.

Dozens of smaller resorts line the shores of the Red Sea, which is a Global 200 Eco region located on top of the Great Rift Valley.
