If you’re longing for a hot and sunny getaway to a destination with spectacular scuba diving, check out Egypt’s Southern Red Sea, it has the added convenience of being just a short flight away from Europe too. You don’t have to spend days (and a small fortune) travelling to far-flung places in the world to get great diving and great weather, and if you only have a few days to spare, the relative ease of getting to Egypt helps to make a diving mini-break a reality.

The diving in Egypt is some of the best in the world and it’s a year-round destination of guaranteed sunshine. By-pass the crowds of the northern resorts and head south for pristine reefs, prolific fish life and encounters with dolphins, dugongs and oceanic white-tip sharks, plus a whole lot more.

Oceanic White-tip

There’s more than enough to do to keep you occupied for a two-week holiday or more but if you have constraints on your time and can only get away for a few days or a week, why waste more time travelling than you need to? For travellers from Europe, jet lag will be of no concern either as there’s just 1-2 hours’ time difference so no time wasted sleeping when you could be diving!

Utopia Beach Club at El Quesir is perfectly situated in Egypt’s Southern Red Sea, for both spectacular house reef diving and visiting world-famous reefs nearby. The family-run hotel is nestled on a breath-taking sandy beach in the bay of Ras Allasad, an area known for its crystal-clear waters and incredible house reef. Divers, sun-worshippers and water sports enthusiasts will all love it here.

Don’t forget to bring your bucket list – the world-famous Elphinstone Reef is reachable from Utopia Beach Club – get ready for Oceanic White-tip action to remember!

We’ll see you soon, we’re just a short flight away…
