Only reason why I have given 4 stars is because of the fact that if you want to go anywhere outside the resort you have to catch a taxi or bus I suppose. As it is (like the other resorts around that area) desert on one side and water on the other and not surrounded by any shops or bars or restaurants. However saying that, its not very expensive to catch a cab if you wish to go off site.

Our second trip to Egypt and now our favourite location on account of Makadi Bay being a most unspoilt attractive beach and coral sea coastline with a choice of high class hotels. Hurghada airport is close by and visitors to this area can relax on account of the security measures now generally in place and in particular those at the airport which include no fewer than five different "screenings".

The day boat trip is definitely worth doing with i-dive which are based on the hotel beach, the crew couldn't do more to make you welcome. We did the dolphin trip (and we saw some too which is always a bonus). The trip was about 10 hours and we did 5 dives in some amazing reefs.

Makadi Bay is quite a quiet location not a very lot to do outside of your resort, but I stayed 11nts and was happy staying around the hotel with a walk along the beach now and then. I walked along the beach to Sahl Hasheesh (the next resort to the north 4/5km) one day and it was a lovely experience. Beautiful!

Things to do

Makadi Bay is a great place to enjoy watersports from snorkelling to scuba diving and boat trips to kite-surfing, the crystal clear waters and golden sands make it ideal for beach activities. Much of the resorts entertainment is to be found within the hotels where many of the hotels offer organised activities, mini-golf courses, sports facilities, evening live shows, a choice of restaurants and bars often with live music.

There is also a golf course in Makadi Bay, along with horse and camel riding, while in the surrounding area there are a variety of excursions to choose from, such as visits to nearby Hurghada, historical sites and desert safaris.

Beaches

Beach shoes are recommended along the coastline due to the closeness of the reefs as often areas of sharp rocks and coral can be found.
