Egypt - Red Sea Coast (Chapter)
This is the Red Sea Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Egypt guidebook.
Some of the most important sites in Christianity’s early evolution are tucked away amid the barren mountains of the north. Venture south and you’ll find some of Egypt’s best diving and the epically wild expanse of the Eastern Desert.
- make a diving date with the world class reefs off Hurghada and discover why the Red Sea was catapulted onto the tourism stage in the first place.
- reflect on monasticism’s centuries-old roots at St Anthony’s and St Paul’s.
- plunge into the lesser-known kaleidoscope-hued reefs of the deep south from one of the beach camps around Marsa Alam.
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Red Sea Monasteries, El-Gouna, Hurghada, Safaga, Al-Quseir, Marsa Alam & around and Eastern Desert.
