Hurghada offers visitors the chance to explore the many delights of Egypt from a sophisticated resort on the Red Sea. With twenty kilometres of beautiful palm-fringed sands, Hurghada contains hundreds of luxury hotels and quality restaurants along its coastline, and offers a wide array of attractions. From the historic bazaar and mosques of the old city to the marina and yachts of the more modern district of Sakalla, Hurghada has something for everyone.

Hurghada has become particularly known for its watersports, and visitors can enjoy diving and snorkelling in tranquil turquoise waters and explore the tropical fish, coral gardens and even the odd shipwreck. With miles of unspoiled silky pale sands and a gentle shelf into the Red Sea, Hurghada is a perfect destination for families looking to visit the wonders of Egypt.
