Founded in the 20th century, Egypt’s Hurghada is a gem. In recent years, this Egyptian fishing village has become a ‘must visit’ destination for guests in our Hurghada hotels who, upon their arrival, discover a vibrant city overlooking a sparkling seascape.
Hurghada is a prime scuba diving spot where guests can take a number of scenic dives, including Careless Reef and overnight journeys to Brothers Islands. If deep-sea diving doesn’t appeal, then enjoy a little snorkeling, a glass-bottom boat ride, or a stunning submarine tour. For the landlubber, the Promenade offers an array of dazzling shopping, dining, and clubbing options. Shoppers staying in Hurghada hotels should also visit the El Dahar bazaar to bargain for papyrus, shisha pipes, and more local favorites. Or you can wander into the desert by camel or off-road vehicle.
To experience the area’s regional history, visit St. Anthony and St. Paul, two of the country’s oldest Christian monasteries, or try your hand reading hieroglyphics at Wadi Hammamat.
Whether searching for age-old sites or premium water sports, our Hurghada hotel guests will discover an unforgettable Red Sea city tourist experience.
