Activities

The holiday resort of Hurghada is renowned for its variety of watersports that includes sailing, fishing, kitesurfing and windsurfing. Offshore underwater gardens and coral reefs make this an internationally recognised location among divers and snorkellers, and for the less active many hotels offer glass-bottomed boat excursions to admire the corals and marine life. Hotels and resorts also offer water activities such as banana rides, pedal boats and canoeing, as well as trips to the Giftun Island Marine Park. On land there are beautiful beaches, golf courses, horse riding, and desert excursions, which include camel rides, hiking, 4x4 or quad safaris.

Restaurants

Hurghada has a variety of restaurants for those on holiday to enjoy, serving food from around the world, from Indian or French to Thai, Mexican and Japanese. El Dahar (downtown) offers a wide choice of authentic Egyptian eateries, including street stalls and inexpensive restaurants, and fast food chains such as KFC, Pizza Hut and McDonalds are also available. Most local places don't serve alcohol. Hotels all have their own restaurants, which serve up a variety of local and international cuisine.

Nightlife

With its growing reputation as a holiday party town 'par excellence', Hurghada boasts a lively nightlife with numerous clubs, discos, pubs and trendy lounges, and a variety of entertainment that includes beach barbeques, karaoke evenings, foam parties and divers' parties. Popular are Papas Beach Club and Calypso, while Alf Leila Wa Leila is famous for belly dancing and Arabic folklore.

Shopping

El Dahar, the old part of Hurghada town, has a traditional Egyptian bazaar with a variety of shops selling tourist souvenirs and holidaymakers can splurge to their hearts' content. Bargaining is expected and prices will generally be better than in the resort village shops. The best buys are papyrus scrolls or traditional 'shisha pipes'.

Negatives

The beach in Hurghada is made of dark red grainy sand interspersed with rocks and boulders; sandals should be worn.

Hi there, many off the beaches in the area are classed as sandy but coral and stones will wash ashore and over time will build up in some areas so beach/coral shoes are advisable. Kind Regards

By Gemma.Larder, loveholidays.com team member

Rate Answer:

In my experience of the Red Sea it can be quite rocky, and the sand is quite coraly/sharp so jelly shoes are a good thing to have in my opinion, especially if you go out a way too and there can be sea urchins too

Hi Phil
The hotel has it's own stretch of private beach and on their website they say that it is sandy, but a few reviews have mentioned that you will need swimming shoes as the sea has sharp stones and rocks in, hope this helps
