Explore the surroundings
With its year-round sunshine, and stunning scenery, above and below the water, the Red Sea Riviera has long been a holiday favourite for sunbathing and a world class diving destination.
On the western coast of the Red Sea between Safaga and Hurghada and approximately 25 km to the south of Hurghada airport, Makadi Bay is a self-contained “village” ideally suited to families and those seeking a more tranquil destination away from the bustle of everyday life.
Makadi Bay holiday highlights
Set in a natural bay, nestled between serene desert sand dunes and the Red Sea Mountains, its long stunning stretches of gently sloping white sand, translucent waters, and exquisite marine life make it a paradise for sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts alike, with snorkelling, diving and kite surfing all readily available.
At night, visitors can enjoy live music at a number of bars and restaurants in the hotels, or walk along the promenade to the resort centre, where the resort’s laid back day-time ambiance is complemented by an equally low-key nightlife.
Makadi Bay offers a wide range of facilities including an open-air theatre, horse and camel riding and golf course. There is also the Makadi Fitness Centre with fully equipped gym, five-a-side football and tennis facilities.
Visit nearby Hurghada where shopping is an evening activity. Bazaars get busy once the tourists are out and about so come willing to be entertained, join in and start bargaining for the right price!
