Located on the Red Sea’s west coast, Hurghada is a popular Egyptian resort. Once a tiny fishing village, it has grown in size thanks to its sandy beaches and reputation for excellent scuba diving. The warm, breezy weather lends itself perfectly to sailing, wind surfing and kite surfing. Hurghada is easily accessed by air or road and makes a great finale to an Egyptian journey.
Whether you want to relax on the beach or enjoy an activity, Hurghada is a great destination. The long strip of resort hotels and scuba diving clubs in the main centre of Sakala is interrupted only by lively restaurants and bars. You can choose whether to grace the golden sands, or search for underwater sea life alongside the colourful coral reef. Wind surfing is another popular activity here as the windy climate is perfect. We also recommend an excursion to the old town of El Dahar, which has traditional shops and tea houses to explore.
