El Alamein is more suitable for summer holidays than traditional Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh, where the air temperature in summer months is quite high.

El Alamein is attractive place for divers and underwater adventure seekers, as a large number of wrecks from the Second World War can be found here, but we should not forget that the Mediterranean is not The Red sea, and there will not be any of the underwater world found in Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh.
