5 reasons to visit Hurghada

Enjoy the corals and the seabed

Who says Hurghada, says diving! This resort nestled on the edge of the Red Sea is world famous for its exceptional seabed. Lovers of corals and fish of all kinds can fully enjoy these decorations, whether through a snorkeling session, during a first dive, or during an outing for the most experienced divers. You just need to jump in the water!

Discover the surrounding islands

Beyond the city and its miles of beach, Hurghada provides easy access to two splendid places: Giftoun Island and the Mahmya Reserve. These two islands, with transparent water, benefit from a grandiose setting and enjoy inimitable marine seabed. With the sun at the rendezvous, the discovery of these two sites will surely be a success.

Ride a quad bike in the desert

The seabed and islands are not the only highlights of Hurghada. Why not take to the desert in a quad bike? This activity, which is very popular with tourists, allows you to discover a Bedouin village, climb the sand dunes, try to ride a camel, and go for a walk in the surrounding canyons.

Relaxation and a boat... or submarine ride

Those who wish to relax may rest on the sandy beaches, cocktails in hand. But sometimes this can end up in boredom. Want to go offshore? Walking at sea on board a boat, with or without a partner, allows you a unique experience in the land of the Pharaohs. Even more atypical, a submarine adventure is possible, to discover the aquatic fauna behind a porthole.

Visit the city and the Abd El Moneim Ryad Mosque

The great Mosque of Hurghada, Abd El Moneim Ryad, is one of the jewels of the city. This religious site allows you to immerse yourself in the local life, as well as the outdoor market that is open every day and in which it is possible to stroll. The Egyptian city offers many sights: Sand City, made up of sand sculptures; the Jungle Aqua Park water park or Dolphin World. So, there is something for everyone!
