A quieter option to neighbouring Hurghada, Makadi Bay is popular for its idyllic palm-fringed beaches, spectacular diving and an 18-hole golf course. The resort is the ideal base for sailing and diving excursions, with a buzzing waterfront filled with quality hotel resorts gazing out across the bay.
Things to do

The water sports in Makadi Bay are excellent, with everything from parasailing to speed boat rides. If golf is your thing, then make a beeline for the resort’s championship golf course, with top-class facilities and magnificent scenery.
The beautiful coastline of Makadi Bay is made up of pale, golden sand that lies in a unique horseshoe shape. The beach is popular in the daytime, but you’ll still be able to find your own spot of paradise on the beach. If you fancy a more upbeat activity, there are a large variety of water sports to try, including jet skiing, windsurfing, paragliding and even pedal boats.
