Hurghada is the second biggest of Egypt’s Red Sea resorts after Sharm el Sheik. Its attractions aren’t over-shadowed by its more famous competitor, though, with visitors enjoying some of the best diving and swimming in the world, from beautiful white-sand beaches.
The Three Corners Royal Star has its own sand and shale beach, and this fine hotel includes diving and snorkelling among its activity offerings. After a day on the beach or in the warm waters of the Red Sea – or in the hotel’s pool - you can retreat to the gym for more fitness work, or a chill out in the spa with a massage or sauna. Kids have a club to cater for their needs, and you can enjoy adult entertainment each evening from staff who speak a range of five European languages. Family rooms help you enjoy travelling as a family for better value prices.
Hurghada is a fun place for visitors. Alongside the natural attractions on one of Africa’s most beautiful coasts – and the famous off-shore island paradise of Giftun Island – is a lively tourist resort with a characterful old town to explore.
Many of the beaches are private and tied to hotels. The strip along the seafront is open to everyone, though, and is full of restaurants serving a huge variety of international cuisines. The old town, El Daha, has all the classic features you’d expect in Egypt such as mosques and bazaars and the marina is the start of a major modern luxury shopping area. A great collection of water parks is a more recent, family-friendly addition to the town’s attractions.
Trips out into the desert are a popular alternative to reef diving, and the historic city of Luxor, or Cairo’s famous pyramids can both be reached by adventurous day trippers. Hurghada is a wonderful resort in a country every traveller should visit at least once.

There have been terrorist attacks and political unrest in Egypt in recent years, though none in the Red Sea resorts. The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office offers some common sense safety advice for travellers, and it’s a good idea to check their latest information before you travel.
