Once a small fishing village, Hurghada has been transformed into one of the popular tourist attractions of Egypt in recent times. Most of its transformation happened owing to the large-scale investments done by the local and foreign investors since the 1980s. Today, you can find some excellent facilities along the coasts for windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, and kitesurfing. It is, therefore, obvious that it is well-known among tourists for its water sports. However, this coastal city in the Red Sea Governorate of Egypt is also famous for its exciting nightlife.
Your cheap Hurghada holidays would take you to the city’s promenade, which is called ‘El Memsha’ in the local language. It is one of the most popular tourist spots in this part of the world and stretches to over 5 kilometres. While enjoying your stroll on its wide and clean paths, you’ll come across several elegant hotels, nightclubs, restaurants and shops. For all those who are visiting Hurghada for the first time, this particular area in the city would seem more peaceful than the rest. You can also shop for some popular brands at the fabulous malls located on the promenade.
During your Hurghada holidays, you’ll certainly get to explore its wonderful beaches. While there are beaches that are owned by the hotels and don’t allow visitors other than their guests, you can find a few others that are open to all throughout the year. One of them is the Old Vic Village, which is protected from the waves and wind by a bay. You have to pay a nominal fee in order to enter this beach and use certain facilities, including the sunbeds and umbrellas. Elysees Dream Beach is yet another fantastic stretch of sand you can visit during your time spent in this part of Egypt. You can get a rejuvenating massage in the spa in the health club located near the beach area.
Whether you’re on the beach for a short stroll or taking a longer tour into the desert located nearby, your cheap holidays to Hurghada would give you the chance to enjoy the camel rides. Most of the resorts in this city would give you the chance to try camel riding and you can take the longer trips if you feel comfortable on them. The long trips would give you the opportunity to know more about the life of Bedouins and savour the unique desert landscapes on the way. You need not fear the camels galloping away all of a sudden as you’ll be guided by the experienced Bedouin men who are expert camel riders.
If you wish to explore the marine life under the waters of the Red Sea without getting wet, take a trip of the sea in the Sindbad Submarine. This is the only submarine that operates on the Red Sea and dives to a depth of about 22 metres under the water. During your trip in this submarine, you’ll get to witness different species of fish and the abundant corals in the depths of the sea.
