Hurghada is one of Egypt's most popular destinations, with tourism accounting for 95% of its economy. This once sleepy fishing village has exploded from a few hundred people to over 100,000 in the space of a few short decades. Snorkeling and diving in the Red Sea and whiling away the hours in the resorts are the attractions of choice. Sip a hibiscus tea and enjoy the sculpted experience.

    Hurghada is one of the best known places on the Red Sea. It lies 600 kilometers south of Cairo, halfway down the Egyptian coast of the Red Sea. Hurgada has always been an attraction for those who seeks peace and tranquility. It is both a summer and winter resort and the starting point for deep sea fishing expeditions. There is also windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, glass-bottomed boat trips and other sports to be enjoyed. Almost every hotel possesses a perfectly equipped diving center. i visited Hurghada in Egypt with alltoursegypt.com ,i enjoyed with them.

    The Red Sea is gorgeous. There are lots of hotels to choose from. The service is fantastic and everyone just has a great time! BUT ... if you're a single woman traveling alone... don't get too friendly with the local men. Sometimes just a smile or two in their direction will have them wanting to marry you! haha

    Popular & Public Beaches in Hurghada
    Backpacking and budget travel is one of the necessary things to keep in mind while traveling to Hurghada in Egypt. You can do as many things as you can, try out different beach spots and enjoy excursion trips. Play it out smart!
    Hurghada is one of the top destinations on the coastline of the Red Sea considering it has a huge Yacht Marina and is a major tourist attraction for its amazing weather and alternative beach holidays in Egypt by avoiding high priced resorts and hotels.
    Perfect holidays in Hurghada is getting the most out of every thing. Few hotels have created beaches that stretch out on the Red Sea corniche with less waves and more rocky trails categorizing the top public beaches near downtown’s promenade. They work best for those who rent apartments and look forward to spend a day use at the beach.
    The top popular and public beaches that are perfect to spend a relaxing day stretch on the corniche. Here’s a nice fair comparison for Dream Beach and Old Vic beaches that serve as a great travel beach experience in Hurghada:
