I have never been to Egypt but hoping to this July. the thought of Sharm doesn't really appeal to me, so after a bit of searching it is a toss between Marsa alam and Dahab, but I am leaning more towards Dahab.
It will be myself, hubby and 2 kids aged 11 and 1. The main hotels that have caught my eye are the Le meridien, and Hilton. I have heard the area itself is windy, but being at the height at summer with a little baby, that will be fine by us, but wanted to know what the beaches were like and if they are rocky or sandy, is the area busy, is the main centre far from the hotels I mentioned, ect...
We tend to like resorts that are on the quieter side, hence me not wanting to go Sharm, so if anyone else can sugests others parts of egypt that are similar and not too busy I would be really grateful :-)
