Hurghada Tours, Vacations & Travel Packages
A resort destination for Egyptians and Europeans alike, Hurghada is a city in the Red Sea Governorate of Egypt. Hurghada is a main tourist centre on trips to Egypt and is known for the excellent diving and snorkelling available on the Red Sea Coas on an Egypt tour.
The city was founded early in the 20th century and has continued to grow. Since the 1980s, both Egyptian and foreign investors have helped Hurghada to expand, resulting in the city becoming a leading resort destination on the Red Sea. The city can be divided into three districts: El Dahhar, the old city centre in which traditional Egyptian life is still alive, the Al-Sakkala which is primarily a tourist hub with many hotels, shopping centres and restaurants, and finally, the Al-Ahiaa district along the coastal road which is the newer area.
Many Europeans choose to visit Hurghada on a trip to Egypt as it offers an excellent beach vacation. The waters here are clear and calm for much of the year making it a popular water sport destination. Windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing and swimming are just some of the activities available. The Red Sea provides excellent scuba diving and snorkelling where incredible coral reefs and an abundance of tropical fish can be seen. Visitors on Egypt tours can also spend the day at the unpopulated Big and Little Giftun Islands which offer a more relaxed atmosphere than Hurghada’s mainland.
