3. Soma Bay

45km south of Hurghada, Soma Bay is an exclusive coastal peninsula, considered one of Egypt's most tranquil locations.

4. Marsa Alam 

If you’re looking for utopia under the sea, this is the place to go. In fact, Marsa Alam is a top destination for diving with sharks. However, the picturesque beaches and balmy year-round temperatures will ensure couples have a fantastic time even if they opt for less adrenaline fuelled pursuits. Al-Naizak, the famous natural pool, is a well-loved beauty spot and the El Qulan Mangrove Forest is well worth a visit too.
