Visit Hurghada: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Hurghada

Giftun Islands
The translucent turquoise waters around the Giftun Islands are just made for snorkelling. Whether you’re a long-time enthusiast or a first-timer, the coral reef and its diverse inhabitants bewitch all comers. Giftun’s stretches of pearl-white sand are also ideal for a lazy day beneath a parasol – so pack a good book and keep the cocktails coming!
Desert Jeep Expeditions
Hurghada may be known as a flashy Red Sea resort, but you can’t visit Egypt and not experience some desert landscape. Take your pick from dune buggies, quad bikes and jeeps, then head out on a high-octane sand-based safari. If you’d rather go “old school”, hop on a camel and let a Bedouin guide show you the way.
Hurghada Marina
If you fancy a taste of the good life, this swanky yacht harbour does the trick. Hurghada’s plushest restaurants and bars can be found around the waterfront, so you’ll catch a gorgeous sunset here while enjoying some enticing cuisine.

Recommended in Hurghada

I loved it because it was so relaxing, the staff were great and so were the animation team. I asked the Chef to make me Jelly and he did. If you need something don't complain just ask. I will be going again if I am alone.

make sure you pick the best diving instructor in town. I've met some rubbish people but the best are 2, make sure you are selecting facility and divers on word of mouth

sunny beach, clear water, soft sand, water sports, beach entertainment (sports, music, dancing, etc.)

The hotel is a bit of a sun trap and the drinks were plentiful.

certain hotels have super infrastructure in water parks

Sunrise Select Royal Makadi Resort

Papas beach club
