Originally a small fishing town on the Red Sea coast, Hurghada developed into Egypt's premier beach destination thanks to its year-round sunny weather and world-class dive sites.
Get some cultural insight at Na'ama Bay and St Catherine Shop. Sharm Papyrus Museum and Sand City will appeal to museum buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Sharm El Sheikh (Shark's Bay Beach, Coptic Orthodox Church, & more). There's much more to do: fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, slough off your stress at Turkish baths, examine the collection at Selkhet Papyrus, and explore by horseback at Hurghada Equestrian.
