Everything you need to know about Hurghada


Imagine being surrounded in a resort with warm seas, sandy beaches and a range of vibrant bars, restaurants and shops; not to mention all year round sunshine. Sound like the perfect holiday? Then you need a trip to Hurghada.  

With so much on offer, including a range of 5 star all inclusive hotels, its no wonder Hurghada is one of Egypt’s most popular holiday destinations amongst British holiday makers.


Stretch out on the white sandy beaches and take in the scorching Egyptian sunshine. Shallow water makes the turquoise sea perfect for paddling and splashing around in, a bonus for families! The majority of hotels on the coast feature their own private section of beach for guests, meaning no more trawling around looking for your perfect spot.

If water sports are your forte, then you’ll love the range this resort has on offer. Experience Hurghada’s world famous coral reefs for yourself with waters full of exotic marine life and submerged shipwrecks from WWII. Just visit one of the local scuba diving and snorkelling centres located on the beach. Banana boat rides and jet skiing are just some of the other exhilarating water sports available to keep you entertained. How brave will you be?


To get a glimpse of real life in Egypt, away from the tourist spots and hotels, pay a visit to the Old Town of El Dahar. Explore the narrow streets, as they wind through the old, traditional buildings and markets selling local produce. Find a bargain from the range of perfumes, jewellery and handcrafted gifts all available. A trip to Sakkala will provide a higher end selection of shops for those in need of some serious shopping.

We recommend that everyone goes to the Hurghada Marina, it’s just one of them must do’s! Take a stroll along the luxury yacht filled marina at sunset for the perfect romantic atmosphere, before dining in one of many up market restaurants available. Choose from a range of cuisines served here including traditional Egyptian, Thai, European and seafood.
