You can stop on route to visit the historic city of El Quseir - the oldest on the red sea with a wonderful Ottoman castle and also to do some shopping or you might  consider a two centre holiday - as while Marsa Alam is considered by many better for diving, snorkeling and relaxation,  Hurghada is great for shopping and night time entertainment and also has some nice beaches.   There is a special offer currently for a hotel only in Marsa Alam - see our special offers page - and you can find hotels in Hurghada through websites such as
