Hurghada lies on Egypt’s east coast where the desert meets the Red Sea. This area is noted for its warm climate, golden beaches and spectacular coral reefs which make it a great choice for a beach holiday in Egypt. Hurghada began as a small fishing village and has developed into a large resort with three main areas. El Dahar, the central town, is the main area for shopping and nightlife, El Sakala, the old port, is on the east facing shore and to the south lies a 15-mile strip of hotels set beside the beach. Hurghada is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the sun, beach, and sea or even bargain for gold in the main bazaar. There are numerous activities on offer including water sports, scuba diving, windsurfing, horse riding and camel treks. Local excursions include desert safaris, glass-bottomed boat trips to the coral reefs, and excursions to Luxor or Cairo. A great way to end the day is to watch an amazing sunset over the mountains behind Hurghada. In the evenings, there is a selection of restaurants, bars and discos and many hotels feature Egyptian folklore shows. Hurghada offers an unforgettable Red Sea holiday experience.
