Snorkeling, diving, and beaches are Hurghada’s claim to fame. Once a fishing village on Egypt’s Red Sea coast, Hurghada is now a busy resort town stretching along more than 20km of sandy beach.

Tourism has been ramping up over the past decade. For British travelers, in particular, the direct flight options from the UK, relative affordability, and easy access to beautiful beaches have made it an increasingly popular destination. The Red Sea offers mesmerizing turquoise waters and a stunning coral reef to explore to your heart’s content.

Hurghada’s diving schools provide an entry point into the world of scuba diving, with world-class diving and snorkeling just off-shore. For travelers who want more than sand and sun, the old town of El Dahar provides local culture with Egyptian coffee shops and souks.

Planning a trip to Hurghada for the first time? Consider staying at one of the top ten best resort hotels in the area.
