Coral Reefs and Pharaohs

Egypt’s tourist hotspot attracts with five-star hotels that boast luxurious pool facilities and direct access to the beach. But Hurghada is more than a top beach destination and offers plenty of other things to do, see and explore.

Summer temperatures and sunshine all year round. Hurghada’s climate is ideal for a beach holiday. The really hot months are May through October – but with water temperatures consistently at 25° C, the Red Sea is always lovely to cool down in.

Underwater Paradise

Perfect conditions for an excursion to one of the coral reefs off the coast of Hurghada. The Red Sea is one of the world’s most beautiful spots for scuba diving and snorkeling. Indeed, Hurghada‘s dazzling underwater world is hard to rival and includes rare, exotic marine life. Rays, lionfish and -in some spots- dolphins share their home with visitors from all over the world. The Giftun Islands are a particularly beautiful getaway featuring crystal-clear water and a fine sandy beach. The offshore coral reefs are within snorkeling distance of the beach. This is Caribbean ambience in Egypt.

Ancient Egypt

Do you fancy immersing yourself in the mystical age of the Pharaohs in Luxor? Situated on the edge of the Nile, the well-preserved tombs of the Pharaohs enthrall with colourful hieroglyphs and amazing architecture. Egypt’s most important landmarks are definitely worth a daytrip and can be reached from Hurghada by bus or plane: the over 4,500-year-old Giza pyramid complex impresses by its age and is the last of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that has remained largely intact. Together with the Great Sphinx, these remnants from the distant past have, to this day, lost nothing of their mystical charm.
