Hurghada Area Holidays

Beach bliss on Egypt’s Red Sea coast

Sandwiched between Sahl Hasheesh and El Gouna on Egypt’s mainland Red Sea Riviera, the Hurghada area is home to some of the country’s most dazzling beaches and finest luxury hotels, with an abundance of choice to suit every taste. 

Beyond its pristine swathes of golden sand, Hurghada also boasts many superb snorkelling and scuba diving hotspots with majestic coral reefs and shoals of brightly coloured fish, which you can easily spot thanks to the beautifully clear water – particularly around the Giftun Islands. 

For an authentic, down-to-earth taste of daily Egyptian life, venture into the old town, El Dahar, and meander your way between the many stalls of the bustling souk. Hurghada Grand Aquarium and Jungle Aqua Park, meanwhile, also make great options for a day out, especially for families with children. 

Offering an enticing blend of nature, culture and boundless scope for relaxation, Hurghada is a wonderful all-round destination for an Egyptian beach getaway.
