Excursions to St. Catherine's monastery and Mount Moses, the colored Canyons and Tiran Island among other excursions are also organized from Sharm El Sheikh. Dahab, Nuweiba or Taba in Sinai: These resorts can be easily reached from Sharm El Sheikh.
Hurghada on the mainland coast: Also famous for its beaches and water-sports facilities, its varied amenities and activities and its wide selection of hotels and resorts, a leisurely stay in Hurghada can easily be added to any chosen program in Egypt. It can be combined with a pre or post Nile cruise. Transportation by air or overland from Cairo is possible. However, many travelers visiting Upper Egypt will end their "expedition" into Egypt's past by traveling overland from Luxor to Hurghada by A/C vehicle... Luxor is one or the closest (tourist) cities to Hurghada where they can relax before returning home.
Hurghada has now expanded through satellite resorts that have been developed in recent years. Such development include the so-called Venice of the Red Sea, El Gouna. Marsa Allam and El Quseir, Soma Bay, Makadi Bay and Safaga
