Holidays to Hurghada

Holidays to Hurghada offer visitors access to all the best that Egypt has to offer. Sitting on the shores of the Red Sea and boasting a spectacular 22 miles of coastline, with the backdrop of the North African desert, Hurghada really is a place where worlds collide.

The city itself is divided into three parts, the old town of El Dahar, Sekalla city centre and El Meshma, which is home to the modern resort development.

Visitors enjoying holidays in Hurghada can experience a taste of old Egypt as they wander through the bazaar in the downtown of El Dahar, haggling with street traders over gifts and souvenirs or sampling the local delights of the traditional eateries.

Hurghada offers the opportunity to enjoy some superb leisure pursuits, especially water sports. The resort, with its stunning stretches of sandy shore and constant sunshine, is seen as something of a centre for aquatic distractions, with a range of sea-based diversions, from sailing to snorkelling and deep-sea fishing and diving, all being available.

Why not escape the Egyptian sun; with average temperature on Hurghada holidays, whatever time of year you go, hovering around 30°C, to explore the amazing underwater environment. There are coral reefs, inhabited by colourful and sometimes rare fish, to be explored on guided dives or snorkelling excursions. If you prefer to keep your feet dry, but would still like to experience this incredible underwater world, you can observe it all from above by taking a glass bottomed boat tour.

Other boat tours offer the opportunity for anyone enjoying holidays in Hurghada to gain a new perspective on the area by taking a sunset tour. These are particularly popular as they give you the chance to see the sunset over the mountains, while relaxing on deck. Alternatively, you could choose to take a day trip to nearby Giftun Island, where shore based snorkelling can be followed by a private barbecue on the beach.

Hurghada holidays offer even more active options, including horse riding, quad bike safaris and kite surfing; whatever your are looking for, there is something to suit every taste.

For families, Hurghada offers ample opportunity for entertainment that will keep both children and adults amused for hours; from the colourful aquarium, showcasing the wonderful undersea world, to the exciting water park, both of which offer great days out for everyone.

In the evening, visitors taking a Hurghada holiday usually head for the main street, which offers a superb selection of restaurants and cafés, where visitors can find a great range of local and international dishes.

As Hurghada is well known for being a lively resort destination, it is no surprise that there is a great choice of bars and clubs, most of which are situated along the main street.
