The Red Sea itself is the main attraction at Hurghada, with oodles of choice in water sports and adventures. There are boat trips to watch whales or swim with dolphins, fantastic snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities, lots of aquaparks for the children and jeep safaris into the desert. For an unforgettable experience, you might also take a day trip to Luxor to see the Valley of the Kings. If you fancy staying in Hurghada to explore, check out the Old Town of El Dahar. Here, you’ll find souks, markets and traditional Egyptian coffee shops.
