Best of Hurghada Guide

Hurghada
Stunning coral reefs and turquoise waters perfect for windsurfing have made Hurghada, on Egypt's Red Sea Coast, a busy resort town. Within easy reach of the stunning Giftun Islands and the Eastern Arabian Desert, Hurghada has seen enormous amounts of development in the past decade—and yes, it does seem overrun with tourists at times. But it’s a relatively easy beach escape for Europeans, and some of the world's best diving and snorkeling sites are just offshore. Walk or catch a cab to explore the old quarter, El Dahar.

Whenever you feel like having a rest on the sea side in a cozy restaurant admiring contours of fine yachts and boats, spend your leisure hours in the Marina, where live music sound every night. With many of Egypt’s finest restaurants, unique cafes and stylish bars, Hurghada Marina Boulevard offers the best in food and beverage for all tastes. Work up an appetite by browsing at your leisure in the widest selection of shops in town. Seek up the traditional atmosphere of the Souk, a unique market place scented with perfumed aromas and glowing with low lighting. Experience the buzz of exciting live music, entertainment and occasional special events. Enjoy a relaxing stroll alongside stunning yachts in the beautiful, secure and traffic free waterfront setting. Adventurers can visit “Rocket bungee” (42 meters high). You can see Hurghada in flight from the height of about 60 meters high. Those who are tired from walking or are hungry can sit in one of the numerous small restaurants or bars.There are 20+ restaurants and bars with various cuisines. You can have a bite or simply have a rest with a glass of a soft drink, or you can indulge yourselves in ice-cream. Under the star sky of Hurghada Marina, near the waves swashed in the harbor, you can enjoy not only the walk but also you can spend an evening in Papas beach club, dance on the dance-ground under the music of famous DJs specially invited for the parties. To find Hurghada Marina you need to order a taxi from hotel reception (preferably) or stop a cab in the street and ask for “New Marina, Sekkala”.
