The Red Sea resort of Hurghada and its region are one of Egypt’s most popular vacation destinations. From El Gouna in the north to Soma Bay in the south, the area’s long beaches, crystal-clear water and impressive undersea worlds make it the perfect venue for sunseekers and water sports enthusiasts.
At temperatures that range between 20° and 30°C, the local Red Sea waters are outstandingly conducive to activities both on and below the surface. Scuba diving and snorkelling are particularly popular, with tropical fish darting among colourful coral reefs, rays and turtles gliding through the clear waters and shipwrecks, too, all waiting to be explored. Favourable wind conditions also make the region a great place to windsurf and kitesurf, for novices and seasoned exponents alike.
Just as varied as its undersea world is the Hurghada hotel scene: from luxury establishments to family hotels with spectacular aqua parks, the region offers accommodations to suit every visitor.
