Hurghada Attractions and things to do in Hurghada

Hurghada - known as Ghardaga in Egypt is located on the clear waters of the Red Sea and is a renowned diving site due to the fantastic coral reefs which sit just off shore. Hurghada offers fantastic year round sunshine with temperatures soaring to the low 40c in the summer so a good quality sun block will be needed. Days can be filled getting a superb tan or taking a trip to the beach or the dessert. It should however be noted that the beaches along the Red Sea coast are unlike those in the Med as many are formed from coral reefs and a gentle paddle in to the sea isn’t an option in most cases. There are also loads of boat trips available in glass bottom boats that allow you to see the marine life without getting your feet wet.


Shopping

Shopping in Hurghada is a treat for one and all. The tourists may not find swanky shopping malls here, but will find - on Marina Boulevard and Nikki leather dehar - equally engrossing shopping experiences. There are also plenty of shops around the sites of attraction, vendors trade mementos, tee-shirts, post cards, tourist guide books and various other items from here.

Nightlife

Hurghada guarantees a fun-filled vibrant nightlife. There are a plethora of options for those night birds who love to party. There are interesting bars, night clubs and pubs.
