Top Things To Do in Hurghada

Water Sports

Hurghada is an international centre for water sports, so it’s the perfect destination for an active holiday. Wandering along the beaches you’ll find activities like windsurfing, jet skiing, parasailing, fishing and sailing.

Diving and Snorkelling

Hurghada offers some of the best diving in the Red Sea, so whether you’re a total beginner or an advanced diver, you definitely don’t want to miss out on the incredible underwater world that’s just metres away!

If you prefer to stick closer to shore, you’ll find excellent snorkelling among the coral reefs by the beach.

Go Diving – without getting wet!

Not a fan of diving, but don’t want to miss out on seeing Hurghada’s amazing sea life? No problem! Hop on-board the Seascope Semi Submarine – an ingenious glass-sided boat which takes you down into the midst of vibrant clownfish, trigger fish, eels, rays and other inhabitants of the ocean, all in air-conditioned comfort!

Family Fun

No matter how young the kids are, Hurghada is a great place to bring them. The soft sands and warm calm waters make beach-life a breeze for parents, and there are plenty of water activities for more active kids to try out!

Away from the beach, families can also enjoy jeep safaris and camel rides in the desert.

Visit the Giftun Islands

These paradise islands can only be reached by boat. It’s definitely worth taking a day trip to Giftun Island, where you can explore the national park, swim in the sparkling seas, snorkel among coral reefs and tropical fish or relax on the pristine, protected beaches
