Visit Hurghada’s new marina to plan a sailing excursion out to the uninhabited Giftun Island, or go scuba diving in the crystal clear depths of the Red Sea. Pick a comfy spot on the soft, sandy beaches for a little relaxation, or get involved with the water sports – Hurghada’s beach has a reputation for great water skiing and kite surfing. For family holidays, it’s well worth visiting one of the city’s nearby water sports like Makadi Bay Water World, where you can cool off on a hot day at the slides and wave pool. The city has an energetic nightlife scene, with a buzzing waterfront lined with bars and clubs.

Long, golden stretches of sand wrap around Hurghada’s coast, with public and private beaches providing prime sunbathing spots all over. The beautifully clear waters of the Red Sea provide fantastic diving and snorkelling, with seascapes busting with reefs and colourful fishes, and shipwrecks further out for the experienced divers to explore. If you prefer not to go underwater, take a glass-bottom boat trip to watch the marine life swimming past. The water sports activities in Hurghada are excellent, with some of the best water skiing and kite surfing in the region.

The new, upscale marina makes sailing trips along the Red Sea coast even easier. One of the best places to visit in Hurghada is Giftun Island, an uninhabited island around an hour from the coast. Giftun has a pretty beach and is a superb place to snorkel, with vibrant underwater life and rare species of fish. If you’re on holiday with kids, Hurghada has several popular water parks within easy reach of the city. Around 45 minutes’ drive is the superb Makadi Bay Water World, with a variety of speedy water slides, a lazy river and wave pool.

Spend a day exploring the spectacular desert landscapes surrounding Hurghada with a desert safari. Take a trip across the sands in a jeep or quad bike, visit a traditional Bedouin village and go for a trek on camelback. Back in the city, the best place in Hurghada for picking up gifts and souvenirs are the city’s souks, where trying out your haggling skills is essential. Hurghada has some of the liveliest nightlife in the areas, with lots of bars playing live music, DJs and karaoke. The waterfront is great place for clubbing, with big international club nights and special nights like foam parties.
