[unpaid advertising, because press trip] After two years break, it goes for several large reports once again to Egypt. On this trip I will visit two dive centers including the surrounding hotels and see the best dive sites of the Red Sea. Two stops are available in Egypt: Sharm El Sheik on the Sinai Peninsula and Makadi Bay near Hurghada. Luxurious hotels, wellness, diving and exciting excursions await you on site. I am curious how well the dive sites have recently recovered and what great hotels await me on site!

First we go to Sharm El Sheik to see the dive sites off the Sinai Peninsula. In recent years, the number of divers at the spots from Ras Mohammed National Park to the Tiran Islands has declined sharply. Of course that had a negative effect on the Desire to travel the tourists and thus on tourism in Egypt. For the coral reefs and the wildlife in the sea, however, there is a great advantage: the flora and fauna in the Red Sea has recovered greatly in recent years.

Corals are recovering and more and more marine animals, which used to be extremely rare, are now sighted here. Sharks, sharks, rays and many other sea creatures return to the reefs. Once upon a time, hundreds of divers were at one point on a reef and, of course, caused concern and damage. On some reefs it looked like the boom times on a battlefield. Today, the number of divers is significantly lower and accordingly, underwater athletes can again experience healthy and healthy coral reefs. Because nature has used the time to recover. On my trip to Egypt in the places Sharm el Sheik and Hurghada I will make myself a picture of the underwater world. How good is it? currently go diving in the land of the pharaohs?

Während my journey In addition to the dive centers I will visit two hotels in Egypt: The Cleopatra Luxury Resort in Sharm El Sheik and the Cleopatra Luxury Resort in Makadi Bay. Both are five-star hotels that leave nothing to be desired: both in terms of food and accommodation, which complies with European standards in these homes. There is also an extensive spa area, in which stressed holidaymakers can be pampered, Located directly on the sea and equipped with spacious pool facilities, these two hotels invite you to relax. Each hotel has a dive center built in to make sure that Diver get their money's worth. In Sharm El Sheik I will visit the VIP Diving Center and in Makadi Bay the dive center of Extra Divers. For Egypt and diving are simply together: From the hotel room to the dive boat and to the reef, it is usually only minutes. And the underwater world in the Red Sea is simply unrivaled!

Holidays in Egypt again in demand

My current visit to Egypt is no coincidence. In recent months, the Tourism in the country recovered again and holidays in Egypt is again in demand. After a few lean years, 2017 can become a new boom year for tourism in the country. Reason enough to look around and see what the situation in the towns and on the reefs is. Slowly but surely the flight contingents are rising again and the destinations on the Red Sea are easier to reach again. Just last year, the new airline flyegypt went to the European destinations with the red More connect to. But also the established European holiday flights return gradually.
