Hurghada is one of Egypt’s premier holiday resorts, treating its visitors to golden sands overlooking the tropical waters of the Red Sea.
Blessed with year-round sunshine and sunbathing temperatures, this incredible destination is a huge pull for British tourists.
Despite its origins as a small fishing town, Hurghada has been a tourist hotspot in recent years and has grown as a result. Holidays here are now commonplace and its 40km coastline boasts a huge number of hotels and all-inclusive accommodation.
Most of the hotels and resorts in Hurghada offer tourists their own private guest-only beaches where you can take part in water sports or simply soak up the sun with a good book.
Hurghada is also a scuba diving hotpot, so whether you’re a seasoned pro or you’re looking for a taster session, this is a great place to get up close to some of the varied marine life to be found here.
Like the rest of Egypt, there is plenty of history to see, too. However, the history in Hurghada is a lot more recent than that of Cairo or Luxor. This history is found in El Dahar, the Old Town of Hurghada, where you’ll find narrow streets, a traditional bazaar and a mosque.
