Hurghada


Hurghada was founded in the early 20th century and until a few years ago, remained a small fishing village. But today it has gone on to become the foremost tourist resort of the  Red Sea coast and an international center for aquatic sports. If it takes place in or on the water you can do it here windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing and swimming, but above all snorkeling and diving. The unique underwater gardens offshore are some of the finest in the world, justifiably famous amongst divers.

The warm waters here are ideal for many varieties of rare fish and coral reefs, which may also be observed through glass bottom boats. This area has many fine accommodations, usually offering warm and efficient service. Restaurants are mostly along the main road. While in Hurghada, don't miss the museum and aquarium with their complete collections of flora and fauna of the Red Sea. Hurghada is also a beach resort, where thousands of older Europeans and others come with their families to enjoy the sun and fun of private resort beaches, some all inclusive. Many of these hotels offer so many activities and facilities that one may never need to leave the resort. Often the larger resorts have playgrounds, discos, bars, a number of pools and even small theaters. Hurghada is city under development. Many new hotels and construction are taking place, and we can expect to see some great new hotels, restaurants and other facilities in the near future. Actually this is a busy section of the Red Sea in general. Safaga is just south of Hurghada and Soma Bay is even closer to the South. To the North is El Gouna a highly organized resort community. Together these communities and resort areas offer just about everything a visitor might wish for from raucous parties to isolated scuba diving with golf, bowling and fishing in between.
