'Hurghada lies between an azure sea, teeming with coral and exotic fish and
hazy blue mountains.'
Hurghada is the best-known of the Egyptian Red Sea resorts. Originally a fishing village, it is now
a fast developing town, fascinating and lively, if somewhat untidy! The wide range of hotels offers accommodation from the
very basic to five star. Most are situated between five and seven kilometres south of Hurghada, on the way to Safaga and Luxor.
Each hotel offers a retreat from the bustle of the town, many having a range of shops and restaurants close to hand. Transfers
to and from your hotel in Hurghada are provided, except for those within walking distance.
Naturally, waterports feature high on any list of things to do whilst
in Hurghada and can easily be arranged whilst in the resort. Inland, it is possible to visit the Bedouins on a jeep safari
or to go across to Luxor for either a day or a week long cruise down the Nile
