Holidays to Hurghada, Egypt

What used to be a tiny fishing village on the coast of the Red Sea is now a busy destination for hot holidays and year round sunshine. Tourists started flocking here in the 1980’s after it became known that Hurghada is home to some of the most beautiful reefs in the world.

Although the untouched reefs are now further out at sea compared to 30 years ago, they still provide plenty of opportunity for exploration either through scuba diving or snorkelling in the more shallow waters. If water isn’t your thing, Hurghada is surrounded by the edge of the Sahara Desert meaning you can be adventurous on land with dune buggies and camel rides!

Even though Hurghada is mainly a tourist destination, there are still glimpses of it’s past in the old town of El Dahar where you can shop until you drop at the town’s bazaars or watch traditional Egyptian entertainment in the evening.
