“Stunning Coral Reefs”

published 12/10/2000

Procoral reefs

Conslittle non-hotel nightlife

Coral reefs, spectacular fish and relatively warm water in winter make this a specialist scuba diving destination. Its frequent northwesterly wind also makes it a major resort for serious windsurfers. The myriad of other water sports activities available are really add-ons. No antiquities for the...

“Chill out!”

ProGreat diving, Cheap beer & 'the Chill'

ConsDepends on what you are there for!

Hurghada Review, I went to Hurghada last December with my husband on a week’s holiday. The week fell over the Christmas period, which allowed us to have Christmas day and the 4 proceeding days leading up to it on a dive boat experiencing the wonders of the red sea! I would recommend getting...

Propractically no

Consdisrespectful people, dirty town, very boring

Hurghada was not the first place I've visited in Egypt, but till date it was my last visit which, unfortunately, left no chances for a positive attitude. I really love traveling and I'm always trying to enjoy the time spent in other countries and to ignore minor problems. Still, I have to...

Cons can't think of any

I have been here a few times now, and I still enjoy it, loads to do or lie on the beach all day. Hurghada is large, quite varied and spreading with all the building going on. There is the old town, Sekalla, new part of town, shopping areas and hotel zone, each with slighlty different charachter...

When I went to Hurghada for the first time I was just amazed by the sea. The water is so warm and clear you never want to get out of it. The coral reefs are gorgeous, also if you just go snorkelling you can see millions of different fish (not even talking about going scuba diving, which is...

I visited Hurghada in Feb, 2007. The weather was beautiful and it is a lovely holiday destination! The sea was warm enough to swim in and the coral reefs are fantastic! I recommend a diving trip if you visit there, or at least snorkelling! The people are really friendly and the area is nice and...

“Hurghada”

published 18/11/2006

ProLovely sparkling sea and snorkelling

ConsCan be unfriendly and impersonal at times

This is definately a touristy place, perfect for people who want the sun, sea, sand, bars and nightclubs right on their doorstep. Almost all hotels have a beach pool - amazing experience! The sea is absolutely beautiful and snorkelling there is a once in a lifetime experience. Unfortunately many...
