Welcome to Hurghada!
Hurghada has metamorphosed into a bustling resort that is renowned for its stunning location and the fantastic water sports it offers. Hurghada was a relatively unknown fishing village and home to fishermen communities for centuries till the 1990s, but the advent of tourism changed this peaceful spot into a bustling destination. With fifteen miles of its coastline, lovely beaches, great value Hurghada hotels, and a beautiful sea where tourists can safely indulge in water sports, Hurghada is a top destination for visitors to Egypt.
The underwater aquatic life in Hurghada is a constant source of fascination for divers and is one of the finest in the world.
A trip to Hurghada revolves around the fabulous Red Sea beaches. Tourists can savour the golden sands and inviting waters that are home to some intriguing coral formations and colourful tropical fish. Wind surfing, sailing, swimming, deep-sea fishing, snorkelling, diving - the entire gamut of water sports are all available here. Diving is one of the favourite things to see and do in Hurghada and the aquatic life here makes it more than worthwhile. Shallow water diving to see under-water wrecks of age-old vessels in the northern part of the Sha'ab Abu Nuhas Reef is also a memorable and unique experience. Snorkelling and glass-bottomed boat trips, as well as adventurous Hurghada tours are also available, allowing tourists a closer look at the marine life.
Some of the non water based Hurghada tourist attractions include jeep safaris and quad biking in the desert. A trip to Hurghada can also be spent just going outside your Hurghada hotel to unwind beside a pool close to the beach. The Maritime Museum in Hurghada is also worth a visit. The museum has fish tanks with the local marine life and also coral formations so that tourists can view them without having to go on a diving trip.
For a Hurghada tour into the cultural heritage of the region, visitors can plan a visit to the ancient monasteries of Saint Anthony and Saint Paul which are close to Hurghada. At these monasteries, monks supervise long-forgotten libraries that conceal many treasures. There are also some Roman ruins in the desert sands that stand testimony to that era.
Another option for a Hurghada tour is a day trip to the Island of Giftun for snorkelling and a barbecue. Tourists can also visit the remnants of the Roman Mons Porphyrites (Mountain of Porphyry) at Gebel Abu Dukhan. Cairo and Luxor are easily accessible from here, so visitors to Hurghada can plan trips to the Valley of the Kings and the Temples of Karnak from here.
Hurghada has something to offer everyone - depending on the pace of their holidays. For those who want a relaxing time spent lounging in the pool surrounded by luxury or basking in the sun on the beaches, Hurghada is the destination of choice. For those who want a more active holiday, aqua sports of almost unlimited variety are available. The nightlife at Hurghada is also event filled and entertaining, making a visit to this city a memorable one.
