The sun in Egypt, especially when kiting on the crystal-clear water, should not be underestimated. Even if you get sun cream in many places in Egypt, we recommend to take enough high-quality sun protection (SPF 30+) with you.
For people with sensitive skin we also recommend UV shirts (Lycras / Wetshirts).
If you have to take medication regularly, make sure that you take enough with you and make a note of the ingredients if necessary, in case you have to buy new ones on site.
Lens wearers should take enough spare lenses with them and we also recommend that spectacle wearers take spare glasses with them.
And sunglasses are part of it.
Please also consult the travel advice for your country.
