Egypt – Winter sun
Dahab – up the coast from Sharmel Sheik was a fantastic holiday with Neilson Activity Holidays (part of Thomas Cook) – BUT unfortunately Neilson have stopped doing Egypt…..
However – their beach club activity holidays ARE excellent – lots of food & excellent child care (inclusive). Have been doing Windsurfing & MTBing for a few years. Their Greece B’club holidays has some excellent MTBing!!Posted 5 years ago
Baron Resort in Sharm is very nice. We went last year around this time and it was fantastic.Posted 5 years agonickjbSubscriber
I like Dahab but mostly because the town is quite nice and moderately unspoilt. There’s great snorkelling right off the beach, too. Those things might not be important to you. It has some big resort hotels which should fit the bill. Sharm was much more European, which might be a good or bad thing.
Should be pretty warm and sunny at Easter but you might need a sweater once the sun goes down (which it does pretty early)Posted 5 years ago
Personally I wouldn’t like to go anywhere that was actually in Sharm, we got a taxi into town one afternoon/evening and I didn’t like the town at all. Not my kind of place really, although some people love it.
The place we stayed at was outside Sharm and nice and quiet, mega relaxing and the sea was amazing for snorkelling and diving, both straight off the beach and from the end of the Jetty where the main reef was.
Can’t wait to go back some time !Posted 5 years agomendippeteMember

We stayed at the Hilton Sharks Bay which is just outside of sharm and it was one of the best hols we have had. 5 min transfer and there is a bus between the sharks bay and the other Hilton in the town. All inclusive was great and loads to do as there is a dive centre in the hotelPosted 5 years agoMunqe-chickMember
It depends what you want to do! if all you want is hot winter sun and an all inclusive hotel with good snokelling that it relatively close you can’t go wrong with Egypt and somewhere like Sharm el Sheikh.
We went in October but we only went for the diving, we did 3 dives a day (even 4 on one day). We stayed cheap and cheerful and we were lucky (well we don’t have high expectations at all and don’t like paying money on good hotels). I would say though you have to pay decent money to get a good all inclusive otherwise the food is shizzle. Sharm is a bit Benidorm, Magalufesque there were a lot of Russian prostitutes and hideously sunburnt over weight chavtastic Brits out there and it’s full of Pizza Hut, TGI Fridays etc. It’s not “cultural”. So all in all it depends what you want!!! We had a great time but all we did was sleep, eat, dive, rest, dive, eat, rest, dive, eat, sleep!!! Perfect.Posted 5 years ago
