Wonderful dive sites, desert excursions and day trips to Luxor

The wonderful sandy beaches, calm waters of the Red Sea and excellent year round temperatures make Hurghada holidays extremely popular during our winter months. Scuba diving is definitely the star attraction with a wonderful choice of dive sites including the fascinating Giftun Island. If diving seems a little scary then snorkelling is a must with hundreds of colourful tiny fish dancing in the shallow waters. Glass bottom boats and sinbad submarine are always on hand though as another option if getting wet is really not for you.

Back on dry land, a desert excursion is something not to be missed while on holidays in Hurghada. Camels, horses and jeeps are all waiting to take you out into the baron landscape of endless sand dunes and rugged mountains, where you can also enjoy a Bedouin experience; an evening under the stars in a genuine Bedouin Camp, soaking up their hospitality and enjoying the traditional entertainment, a truly unforgettable experience.

Day trips to Luxor are also very popular with the chance to see a bit of Ancient Egypt; visit the famous Karnak Temple and discover archaeological sites hiding ancient Roman settlements. A little closer to Hurghada are the neighbouring resorts of El Gouna, Safaga and Soma Bay, all offering alternative beaches and restaurants for a good day out.
