Gebel Elba is blessed with moderate climate that even though it’s located right in the middle of the desert, it has a high rainfall which caused the exceptional phenomena of “mist oases”.

Vegetation in Gebel Elba National Park is the richest in Egypt; mangroves, acacias and Balanites Aegyptiaca among others can be found there.

The Historic City of El Quseir

Spend a great day in the city of El Quseir, best known for its’ Ottoman fort and small bazaars. El Quseir is just a 20 minutes drive away from Marsa Alam. Once you get there, start exploring the Ottoman castle that was built by Sultan Selim back in 1517 to protect El Quseir since it used to be Egypt’s most important port.

Afterwards, you can start shopping at the city’s stunning local market. Papyrus, perfumes, silver crafts and shishas are very popular souvenirs that can be bought for cheaper prices.

Wadi Hammamat

Wadi Hammamat is a dry river valley that used to be a part of the trading route connecting Luxor to the Red Sea and Asia. Dive the wonderful desert; explore the long-abandoned goldmines and oases and watch the ancient rock inscriptions. Choose between Jeep and quad bikes for your safari. If you’re less adventurous, you might try horse or camel safari.

Port Ghalib Marina

Spend a night out at Port Ghalib Marina that hosts gourmet restaurants, buzzing nightlife spots and upscale shops overlooking the exquisite marina and the luxurious yachts.

Musical concerts are frequently held in Port Ghalib. Discos and dancing clubs with worldly renowned DJs can be found in Port Ghalib too. Chain restaurants like TGI Fridays, Pizza Hut and The Grand Café have their only branches in the surrounding region. More than 160 retail outlets can be found in Port Ghalib where you can shop till you drop, although we recommend El Quseir as a cheaper alternative. World class spas, diving centers and other water activities are available as well. A ride in a submarine is highly recommended to get the chance to watch plenty of fish species and other sea creatures.

Bonus Tip

Make sure to visit Marsa Alam during Easter (Sham El-Nesim) vacation; that's when 3alganoob (to the south) festival takes place. During 3alganoob festival, you can enjoy live performances by talented independent musicians and artists, dancing, sunbathing and stargazing. 3alganoob is a great opportunity to socialize and spend quality time with new interesting people. The festival offers accommodations in huts and chalets for extra fees and either ways it will be much cheaper than hotels.
