Travellers will find activities and experiences to suit people of all tastes in Egypt's Red Sea region, according to the tourism authority representing El Gouna.

The organisation revealed that the country is 'a haven for golfers', with 14 full-size courses available for tourists to visit.

One option is the 18-hole championship golf course in Taba Heights, which was mapped out by a leading American designer and offers views across the Red Sea to Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel.

For those with no interest in golf, the resort towns of El Gouna and Taba Heights offer other activities including day trips to Israel and Jordan.

Visitors can also head to nearby Alexandria, Luxor and St Catherine's to learn about local history.

People with an interest in active pursuits can pay a visit to Waterworld, a watersports and diving centre in Taba Heights, or go for a quad bike ride in the desert.
