      Flights to Marsa Alam and the Red Sea

      The town of Marsa Alam is one of Egypt’s rare seaside resorts that is still undiscovered by mass tourism. It’s the place par excellence to relax and take advantage of the beauties of authentic Egypt. Its mangroves and palm trees make it a true tropical paradise.

      This seaside resort is famous above all for its underwater diving, which includes many sites as yet unexplored... so don’t wait a moment longer, and dive into the first Brussels Airlines plane. The magnificent hotels of Marsa Alam await you!


      What to do in Marsa Alam?

      1. Sharm El Luli. No need to go to the Maldives or Tahiti. You have everything on this Egyptian beach: white sand, turquoise water, and breathtaking corals. The only danger is catching the sun, so don’t forget sun cream. You will also find inlets where you can watch fish and turtles!
      2. If you’re still not satisfied, go to Elphinstone Reef, which is THE place for diving in Marsa Alam. Here, you can dive between 20 and 40 metres and catch a glimpse of oceanic whitetip sharks as well as dolphins and turtles. It’s clearly one of the most beautiful sites on the Red Sea. However, to see turtles under the best conditions, you are recommended to go to Marsa Mubarak where you’ll have a chance to swim with them!
      3. The Aqua Coraya water park gives you and your children the chance to spend some quality family time together. With waterslides, swimming pools, and other attractions, the children won’t notice the time flying by, and will have an unforgettable day with you.

      • Telephone calls and Wi-Fi: The dialling code for Egypt is +20. You will have no trouble finding Wi-Fi. Indeed, Wi-Fi networks are available in the airport, and are often in Marsa Alam’s hotels, restaurants and cafés.

      What to do and not do in Marsa Alam?

      • Egypt means markets, and therefore haggling! Here is some useful information to help you become an adept negotiator:
        1. Don’t enter a shop with a guide. It’s better to be on your own.
        2. Don’t show too much interest in the item you wish to buy. If you do, the shopkeeper will only give you a small discount.
        3. Take care never to mention the price first, but leave that to the salesman. This is a basic principle in negotiation. Don’t be afraid to tell your life story before returning to the item you’re interested in.
        4. Dress appropriately in keeping with the local culture.
        5. It is always appreciated if you use a few words in Arabic as a sign of respect (see the list below).
        6. If you manage to negotiate a reduction of more than 50%, that’s a good price.
        7. If you don’t agree on the price, walk out of the shop slowly to give the salesman time to approach you one more time.
      • Showing signs of affection in public, such as kissing, is greatly frowned upon by the Egyptians. In short, as a mark of respect for the Egyptian culture, dress appropriately. Away from the beach, do not wear short skirts or shorts, and never appear without a shirt or suitable covering!
      • You can pay in euros or dollars in most restaurants! If you intend doing some shopping, take several types of currency as this can be useful.
      • If you dream of visiting the pyramids at Giza or the temples at Luxor, don’t forget that Egypt is a huge country and the distances from one city to another can be significant. If you want to transfer to Cairo or Luxor, plan in advance, and consider flying there, instead of going by bus.

      When to go to Marsa Alam?

      The weather in Marsa Alam means tourists can go there all year round as there is very little rainfall on average, and it has a more than pleasant temperature (between 22°C and 33°C on average). Don’t worry, even in January (the coldest month) it’s a minimum of 15°C.
