Hurghada City information

Hurghada

The city of Hurghada is another major tourist attraction in Egypt. This city draws more than 2.5 million visitors every year, and yields more than 3 billion dollars to Egypt’s economy.

 

Hurghada is located on the Red Sea coast, almost 550 Km from Cairo. Egyptian’s used to call it Ghardaka, from which the name of the city was derived.

 

Hurghada stretches for about 60 Km along the Red Sea coast, and has more than 80,000 inhabitants: mostly immigrants from Upper Egypt, seeking investment and work opportunities in the this newly developed sea resort. Hurghada today has more than 170 hotels and it is still developing.

 

 

Hurghada and the Red Sea coast enjoy a very moderate weather throughout the year, making it an ideal place for sea sports. Average temperature from March to November ranges from 26C to 29C, and in the hottest summer months the temperature can reach 33C. Water temperature is also very moderate, which makes it possible to practice diving throughout the year.

 

The main tourist attraction in Hurghada is the marine life, with lots of coral and colourful fish, which is located very close to the shore: Hurghada has some of the finest coral in the world. If you like to practice diving, then Hurghada, or Sharm El-Sheikh, are your places to go,

 

Hurghada also has many offshore islands, such as:

 

Sheduan Island

Gifton Island

Umm Gammae

Dishet El-Dhaba

Abu Ramada Island

Abu Minqar Island

 

Hurghada today is a world center for sea sports such as diving, snorkelling, sailing, windsurfing, and deep-sea fishing. The unique offshore underwater gardens are justifiably famous amongst divers. The warm waters here are ideal for many varieties of rare fish and coral reefs, which may also be observed through glass bottom boats.

 

Next to Hurghada there have been newly developed resorts, which include:

Sahl Hasheesh

Makadi Bay

El Gouna

This is a tourist resort centre, with many different facilities, located 25 Km north of Hurghada. It consists of several tourist resorts, international hotels with different diving centres and a golf course. El-Gouna has a small airport, suitable for handling private planes.
