Cruising to Sokhna, Egypt

The name El Sokhna or Ain Sokhna translates to Hot Springs, with this beautiful Red Sea resort taking its name from the thermal springs that can be enjoyed at the nearby Ataka Mountain. Of course, you'll be hot enough in Egypt without needing to immerse yourself in a geothermal pool, although paying a visit to this stunning natural attraction is still an absolute must when in the area.

The resort itself is just over an hour from both Cairo and the Suez Canal, and is therefore a wonderful base for exploring Egypt's many famous highlights. However, those who wish to simply stay put and relax on the beach will find the coastline here to be among the most picturesque in the world.

In addition to the wonderful sandy beaches, there's loads to discover beneath the waves, with the Red Sea being renowned as one of the top snorkelling and scuba diving destinations on the planet. Visitors will also have the chance to take part in a range of other water sports, from jet skiing to windsurfing, while the nearby resort of Porto Sokhna is home to some world-class golf courses and top-rate shopping facilities.
