Hurghada was once a tranquil little fishing village and from the 1980s was developed into a tourist El Dorado by American, European and Arab investors. Only 11m above sea level, the city is located on the Egyptian mainland, nestled between the Red Sea and the eastern desert and mountains of Egypt.
After spending the first hundred years of its life as a sleepy little fishing village on the Red Sea, it is now one of the most popular beach and diving destinations in the Middle East.

Hurghada is a year-round destination, but it really depends on your personal preferences. Spring and fall are Hurghada's "high season" - this is when the weather is most ideal (beach weather without temperatures skyrocketing). The suptropical desert climate defines the life of the city and only a few weeks a year would visitors from Nordic countries talk about winter. In the months of November to February there is sporadic rain and in these months it also gets cool in the evenings and you can see Egyptians with thick down jackets strolling along Sheraton Road next to tourists in summer dresses.

The population is growing rapidly. In the government district of Hurghada, working and living there, its estimated 260,000 people (estimated, since there is no reporting system in Egypt). Approximately 10,000 people are employed in El Gouna alone and the majority of the locals work and live for and from tourism. The fact that a high percentage of them are employed illegally does not break the boom of the city, but the social insecurity for the Egyptians remains a part of everyday life.

The region offers everything the tourist heart desires. Finding a stretch of beach in the city that is accessible without paying is nearly impossible. The use is reserved for paying guests and hotel visitors. We strongly recommend to visit the national park "Giftun Island" which is located 5 km off the coast of Hurghada. The white sandy beaches and the turquoise water give you a Caribbean feeling. The enjoyment of a cocktail at the beach bar included.

The hustle and bustle of the city, the lively evenings and the sights of the city, such as the Coptic church in Dahar, the new marina which was opened on June 6, 2008, the adjacent fish market, the Al Mina mosque, the new museum and the "old town" Dahar where you are among the locals lets you feel the oriental lifestyle and makes this city so lovable.

Welcome to Hurghada. We love the city in which we work and live.
