Set in a peaceful location, Makadi bay is located 35 kilometres south of Hurghada. It is a beautiful natural bay, nestled between desert dunes and the breathtaking Sinai mountain range.
Sunwing Waterworld Makadi
A fun activity for the whole family is this newly opened water theme park which has large slides, a wave pool and other fun-filled water features.
Tantalise your senses at this typical Arabian souk where you can shop for anything you can think of from souvenirs to take back home to Egyptian jewellery, perfume, and clothing. Just walking around here is great fun and very entertaining.
As with every destination on the Red Sea, diving is a key highlight with reefs and an underwater marine world as magnificent as the Red Sea's. The most popular dive spot in Makadi Bay is Abu-Hashish, which means in 'Father of Grass' in Arabic and it was given this name because this very shallow dive site is filled with sea grass. Great for beginners to all levels of divers, at Abu-Hashish you can see puffer fish, octopus, and sea horses, among other fish.
Perfect for snorkelers, Makadi Bay is fronted by a long stretch of white sandy beach and home to a spectacular house reef. Trips to nearby islands great for snorkelling too can also be arranged from Makadi Bay.
