Hurghada started its life as an oil town but these days instead of oil wells you will find luxurious hotels that specialise in all inclusive. Hurghada holidays are relatively young with the most development beginning from late 80’s, meaning you should be staying in a modern hotel. Hurghada is divided between three major parts, central which is named El Dahar. Despite the term central it is on the North Coast with only a few hotels with their own section of beach.

Just down the coast a little is El Sakala, here is mainly a more budget hotel and not as good a quality, although there has been a few better class of accommodation in recent years.

Further down the coast from El Sakala lies, large all inclusive villages. These are the norm here and will provide you will good value and quality cheap all inclusive holidays… in Hurghada this is the popular place to have a break.

The natives are welcoming, many speaking a little English. Women on their own will be pestered by the local men if you venture out for a night on the town

Whats Special:
