Hurghada was founded in the early 20th century, and until a few years ago, remained a small fishing village. But today, it has gone on to become the foremost tourist resort of the Red Sea coast and an international center for aquatic sports. If it takes place in or on the water you can do it here: windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing, swimming, but, above all, snorkeling and diving.

The temperature is lovely all year round, with Hurghada dry desert climate you should expect large differences in the temperature between night and day, days are hot, while nights can get pretty cold especially during winter months. Temperature can reach highs of 18 C and lows of 42 C.
