      Originally a sleepy, remote fishing village, Hurghada has become one of the liveliest and busiest resorts in the Red Sea whilst retaining the character and charm of bygone days.

      The resort boasts all the facilities of a modern Egyptian city without losing its timeless desert quality. Some of the finest underwater gardens in the world offshore beckon snorkellers and divers alike to experience the beautiful corals and spectacular marine life for which the Red Sea is renowned. Hurghada has a fine selection of quality hotels with water sports facilities that include windsurfing, sailing, deep sea fishing, swimming, colourful bazaars and a lively varied nightlife. Hurghada is a haven for water sports enthusiasts and sun seekers.

      For those who want to glimpse the wonders of the Red Sea without getting wet, you can visit the Red Sea Aquarium. As an alternative you can dive to dizzy depths in comfort, aboard the Sinbad Submarine. Another window to the underwater world of the Red Sea is offered to you on board a glass-bottom boat.

      Merging the old with the new, Hurghada has something to offer those interested in the history of the resort with excursions to Roman sites or the monasteries of St.Paul and St.Anthony.
