From humble beginnings as a small fishing village, tourism has boomed here since the 1980s. If you're planning a holiday in Hurghada then you'll be heading for the most visited city in Egypt, not bad for a country that boasts the only remaining Wonder of the Ancient World!
There are cheap Hurghada flights available from the main airports in the UK, and you should expect at least one stopover. Flight times range between six and eight hours, so it won't be long before you start your holiday proper. Most hotels can arrange transfers for you, or they may come as part of your holiday package, so check before investigating alternatives.
There are over 100 hotels in Hurghada from basic to deluxe, and most offer all inclusive options so you really can work out how much your holiday will cost before you travel.
Aside from the amazing snorkelling, Hurghada boasts plenty more to do on holiday. Take a quad bike tour of the Sahara Desert, enjoy a Bedouin meal, and barter for souvenirs at the bazaars in El Dahar. Taking a boat out to Giftun Island is a truly memorable way to spend the day, or rub shoulders with the rich at the marina.
