Five amazing things to do in the Red Sea handpicked by loveholidays

Last updated 18th April 2024

We weren’t surprised to discover loveholidays are experts in Egypt, but we were thrilled to hear how many amazing things they found for families to do on holiday in the Red Sea.


Even Red Sea beaches are family adventures

We love Egyptian escapes and we’re willing to bet your kids will, too. I mean, with this North African hotspot offering glorious swathes of sand, turquoise waters teeming with fish and deserts speckled with Indiana Jones-worthy attractions, it’s hard not to picture you and your brood here. There’s a lot of good stuff to cover for families, so let loveholidays boil it down to the top things to see and do in the Red Sea.


Underwater adventures, Red Sea

Why loveholidays can’t get enough of aquatic adventures in the Red Sea

Water babies, look no further than the Red Sea for your next foray beneath the waves.

Finding Nemo fans will be floored by shimmering shoals, drifting turtles and gliding rays, whether snorkelling or scuba diving. Of course, you’ll have a tough time finding a bad beach in resorts like Sharm and Hurghada, but loveholidays especially recommend exploring Ras Mohamed National Park: the shallow lagoons and reefs are perfect for beginners.


Bedouin Camel Train, Red Sea

Don’t miss out of the wonders of Bedouin encounters

 Make your Bed-ouin and lie in it with a night of authentic cuisine and entertainment at an authentic tented camp in the Sahara. Little ones will love settling in for a cross-legged meal amidst camel-dotted desert dunes with a backing track of melodic Egyptian instruments.

As the sun sets, then the celestial theatrics begin. Just watch as your kids’ jaws drop while spying starry constellations and even comets through a telescope.

loveholidays predict you’ll be bewitched by Red Sea bazaars

The Red Sea is the place to step up your souvenir game and live out any Aladdin’s cave fantasies on a family shopping trip with an authentic twist.

Head to the Old Market in Sharm el Sheikh or El Dahar in Hurghada to explore the myriad of little shops and restaurants flanking the narrow streets. Teach the kids how to identify herbs and spices, haggle for rainbow-hued lamps and hand-woven rugs or customise a unique perfume with oud and amber.


Explore the extraordinary Red Sea landscape

No question, Quad Bikes rule for family thrills

Swap TVs for ATVs and speed into the Sahara, past camel caravans, Bedouin villages and terracotta-coloured mountains.

Children aged over 12 are permitted to drive their own quad bike, or sit side-by-side with you as you take the wheel. You can stop at the foot of Mount Sinai and explore the ancient walls of St Catherine’s Monastery or keep the pulse-pounding activities coming with an extra active add-on to your tour. Sandboarding anyone?
