Hurghada

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.

Spend the 7th (Sat) in unforgettable company with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Senzo Mall, get outside with Sharm El Naga, observe the fascinating underwater world at Hurghada Grand Aquarium, and admire the masterpieces at Sand City.
