Chilling out rules the day when it comes to holidays in Marsa Alam. Egypt's southernmost Red Sea resort, this secluded place may have grown from a fishing village, but it's still undeveloped enough to put peace-seekers on cloud nine.
Not that you'll see many clouds. Bathed in hot sunshine, holidays in Marsa Alam are about blue skies, stunning beaches and zero distractions. Sweeping sands dotted with straw parasols create utopia for sun-worshippers. Inches away, shimmering seas hide an amazing array of tropical fish. Intersperse your snoozing with some snorkelling or if you're into scuba, head for Elphinstone, where coral and sponge-covered walls plunge dramatically into the depths.
Otherwise, Marsa Alam holidays mean taking things easy at beautiful beachside hotels. If you want absolutely everything on tap, it's worth considering the Brayka Royal hotel, with its own coral reef and private beach. Or opting for a Thomson Platinum break at the Arabian-style, bayside Iberotel Coraya Beach Resort.
Should you fancy some adventure, Marsa Alam has some surprises waiting. There's lots to tempt you away from the beach - why not try the Valley of the Camels?
