Hurghada Holidays

Hurghada is a great family destination. It has a wealth of good quality hotels, spread out along 20 miles of Red Sea coast, taking advantage of the beautiful golden beaches.

Hurghada, Egypt

The Resort

Hurghada is located on the east coast of Egypt, 320 miles south of Cairo and 170 miles east of Luxor. Hurghada is the biggest town on the east coast of the Red Sea and is a very popular destination with families and those looking for action holidays such as diving and kite surfing.

Hurghada until relatively recently was a small fishing village with a population of a couple of hundred people. Then in the early eighties the Egyptian government, wishing to take advantage of its beautiful resources, decided to develop it as a tourist resort.

Today Hurghada is a flourishing Red Sea Resort spread along over 20 miles of coast. It is a resort dedicated to tourism with a population estimated to be around fifty thousand made up mainly of tourists. Hurghada is a able to appeal to a wide selection of tourists, from families looking to have a beach holiday and relax to thrill seekers wanting to kite surf, scuba dive, snorkel, water ski or going on safari's into the desert.

Shopping

Hurghada shops are a great temptation to for those who enjoy seeking out unique souvenirs or objet d'art. Popular gifts include spices, coffee, perfumes, jewellery, painted papyrus, Red Sea T-shirts and locally hand crafted goods. Of course you have to haggle for the the desired gift which means have a good strategy to obtain a bargain. The most effective strategy is to start roughly 50% of the initial price and then settle in the region of about 70%.

Go to the Sakala district for groceries and also Abu Ashara, the local supermarket which is like a small Tesco's where the prices are fixed. Ad-Dahar is a charming area where there are many shops and stalls located in the souk area. Here you can pick up antiques, perfumes, trinkets and the like at decent prices - provided you are good at haggling! Alternatively, the Hurghada Marina Boulevard has over a hundred outlet shops selling the latest European designer labels and big brand names.

Family Entertainment & Trips

Hurghada offers a variety of things to keep your kids entertained. From very young children to lanky teenagers you'll be hard pushed not to keep them happy. For the young-uns many of the hotels are All-Inclusive and run kids clubs offer a variety of activities.

For the older children, if they are feeling adventurous, can try their hand at scuba diving or if they are not old enough snorkelling. Again many of the hotels offer a variety of activities which the older children can join in on so they should not really be moaning about being bored. If they do complain just threaten them with going shopping - this usually works!

The Marine Biology Museum Hurghada may be of interest to those who have gone or intend to go diving or snorkelling. Here they can learn about the various types of marine life they'll see when swimming in the Red Sea.
