e a 45-minute boat ride away.

Red Sea

one of Egypt’s busiest holiday destinations. Hundreds of hotels and restaurants dotted along its serpentine coastline. To the north is the historic old town, to the south is the brand-new, palm-lined Village Road, and in the middle is Sakala, the frenetic and fast-paced town centre.

The beaches

Dozens of private hotel beaches form a necklace along the scenic shoreline. They all have soft white sands, which shelve gently into the turquoise sea, so armband-clad children can paddle safely. And just off the coast are coral gardens, reefs and World War II wrecks where bright shoals of fish part and reform as you swim through them. Hurghada City has a long list of professional dive centres that can take you to the reefs. With so much competition, the standards are high.

Old meets new

Away from the beach, this vibrant town throws up surprises around every corner. El Daha, the old town, is veined with a warren of narrow streets. There’s a mosque here, a bazaar there, giving you a strong flavour of Egypt as it’s been for centuries. For more modern tastes, check out Sakala. Lining both sides of Hurghada Marine Boulevard is a first-rate selection of shops, and at the nearby marina, upmarket restaurants face out onto the luxury yachts moored in the water.

Further afield

Framing the town the windswept Sahara desert, where camel trains traverse the rolling dunes. Bedouin tribes have lived the same nomadic existence between these sandy hills for millennia. To experience it first-hand, sign up for a desert safari. But if you’re more into Robinson Crusoe than Lawrence of Arabia, Giftun Island is a castaway’s paradise.
