LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 24, 2012) - Summer is almost over and the kids will soon be back at school, heralding the start of autumn and all it entails. But this season doesn't have to just be about gearing up for the icy winter with Cosmos offering some great package holidays for those looking to squeeze in a quick dose of sunshine before it's officially woolly hat weather.
Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt is a fantastic holiday destination for those seeking some serious autumnal sunshine. With temperatures averaging at a comfortably hot 35°C in September and only dipping as low as 27°C in November, it's beach weather throughout autumn.
Alongside some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, a holiday in Sharm el-Sheikh gives you the opportunity to experience a range of great activities. A boat trip to the Ras Mohamed National Park is a must to catch a glimpse of spectacular coral reefs and over a thousand different species of fish, starfish, and crustaceans in crystal clear waters.
Family members both young and old will love snorkelling amongst the local wildlife, with some lucky explorers possibly being able to spot a turtle or two relaxing below the surface. More experienced swimmers should try their hand at the world-class scuba diving facilities, with the wreckage of the SS Thistlegorm a mecca for dive enthusiasts.
Alternatively, the Aqua Blue Water Park is a great way to cool off. The popular park boasts 32 slides, 12 of which are child-friendly, so your little ones can join in on the fun whilst the thrill-seekers in the family go wild on the bigger rides. If they still have the energy left, adrenaline junkies can throw themselves into the bountiful selection of water sports on offer, such as wakeboarding, windsurfing and sailing.
