About Hurghada

The thriving resort of Hurghada started life as a sleepy fishing village and this area still retains much of its traditional Egyptian charm. Hurghada is generally regarded as the capital of the Red Sea region and its reputation as one of the world’s leading diving locations means that Hurghada attracts divers from all over the globe.

Hurghada is also a popular choice with sun seekers and watersport enthusiasts, drawn by its beautiful sandy beaches and vibrant atmosphere. Hurghada boasts 22 miles of coastline dotted with a combination of beachfront resort-style properties offering every known facility and centrally located hotels.

Hurghada offers a superb range of shops and restaurants – everything from the international Hard Rock Café chain to traditional Egyptian coffee shops.

A visit to downtown Hurghada is a must for practising your bartering skills in the lively bazaars. Seek out some great bargains amidst colourful carpets, shining gold and the smell of spices and oriental perfumes. At night time, Hurghada really comes alive and you can choose from a number of bars and clubs for late night entertainment, some of which are located directly on the beach.

Hurghada is also a great base for exploring further afield. The nearby resorts of luxurious El Gouna and undiscovered Safaga make for an interesting interlude. Luxor and Cairo are both easily accessible and make superb day trips for those wanting to taste the real history of ancient Egypt.

Egypt is a cultural crossroads. Combine wonderful diving with the chance to discover the Pyramids, see the treasures of Tutankhamen or enjoy star watching in the desert with the Bedouin tribes.
