The 10 Best Things to do in Hurghada, Red Sea and Sinai

May 22, 2022 Chanda Heide

Stunning coral reefs and turquoise waters perfect for windsurfing have made Hurghada, on Egypt's Red Sea Coast, a busy resort town. Within easy reach of the stunning Giftun Islands and the Eastern Arabian Desert, Hurghada has seen enormous amounts of development in the past decade—and yes, it does seem overrun with tourists at times. But it’s a relatively easy beach escape for Europeans, and some of the world's best diving and snorkeling sites are just offshore. Walk or catch a cab to explore the old quarter, El Dahar.

Really good day out for everyone, well worth the money! Myself, my girlfriend and my brother had never done wake-boarding before besides myself. We all had two 15 mins session with the instructor, who was really helpful and chilled. You had the option to go on the big park if you wanted (which has kickers and rails). After our session we were give some cold water and taken into town for lunch at a local cafe which was lovely. After lunch we were taken back to the hotel. Would recommend this trip as it’s well worth the money and is just generally a good day out for everyone!
