Courses are available for both adults and children, so no matter what your age, you can learn how to control a boat by using its sail in the wind. This is a great way to build upper body strength, get active and learn something new that you won’t forget.
If you want to experience the undersea world of the Red Sea but don’t fancy getting too out of your depth by diving then why not stay closer to the shore and try snorkelling. As long as you are a capable swimmer, you will get the chance to see some of the amazing sea life that includes rays, fish and turtles. The sea is crystal clear, so you won’t have trouble seeing through the water. It also means that you won’t need to wear heavy diving equipment, which can be quite scary if you’ve never dived before. There are many snorkelling spots to take advantage of and you won’t have a problem buying some quality snorkelling gear for a great price.
5. Horse Riding
As well as camel riding, you will also get the chance to try horse riding, whether you want to do it on the beach or through the desert. These beautiful horses are well trained and very friendly but always take care when approaching them. As soon as you are saddled up and ready to go, you will head out and start exploring the area. The horses are tall putting you in a conveniently high position allowing you to see more. Just make sure you hold on tight and control your horse when required. It’s a fun experience especially for the older children.
