Holidays in Egypt.
The opening of Egypt to receive foreign tourists is good news for those who were looking for a way to still relax in this difficult year. Prices in Egypt do not break price world records - it is still one of the countries offering affordable vacations. Maybe the hotels and tourist infrastructure seem very simple after visiting, for example, the United Arab Emirates, but Egypt has one of the world's finest natural resources - it is located on the shores of the Red Sea.
The water of the Red Sea is very warm
In the summer it can reach 35 degrees on the coast, and there are even places where at a depth of 2.2 km the temperature reaches 44 degrees!
Its not needed to say that you can swim in such water for hours. This is what numerous vacationers do. Besides its remarkable temperature, the Red Sea is one of the most transparent. Add to these advantages an amazingly rich and colorful underwater world, and you will understand why the sea is literally covered with “floats” in masks with snorkel and fins. You can look at the underwater, as if an alien world, in warm and transparent water for hours.
Oh, and don't forget to apply sunscreen all over your body! In water, the skin tans and burns even faster than on the beach! To see “alien” wonders in the Red Sea, it is not at all necessary to master the art of scuba diving with expensive equipment and heavy oxygen tanks - fish and corals are quite close to the surface of the water. And the most ordinary person is quite capable of lying on the water with fins and a mask and watching the world as much as he pleases ..
