Cheap flights to Hurghada
When it comes to that good old mix of rest, relaxation and revelry, the Red Sea resort of Hurghada has a winning formula. Located on Egypt’s eastern coast, this relative newcomer in the world of sun-drenched tourist hotspots is famous for its crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches, colourful coral reefs and all kinds of accommodation.
From five star luxury to simple self catering, you’ll find whatever it is you’re looking for here. And the clientele? Well this place is popular with families, independent travellers, youngsters looking for a party and even your romantic break couples – and with beaches this good, it’s not difficult to see why.
Flash Gallery is a small-but-perfectly-formed space packed to the roof with local ceramics, lights, gifts and trinkets. You'll find polite service and decent prices here, so support the little guy (Sheraton Road, five shops up from Thomas Cook Exchange).
July heralds the start of the month of Ramadan, when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. It is an important time so please show some respect and a little patience although in most places you will not notice any difference in tourist service.
El Gouna, just 30km north of Hurghada, offers a range of activities, bars, restaurants and shops, all with a Mediterranean-meets-Egypt feel. A great day out for a change of scene.
