Low price hotels, food and drinks, safe destination and friendly people
HURGHADA, EGYPT: This part of the Red Sea Coast is best known for warm year-round climate, for its clear azure waters, for beach resorts and a diving destination. Add low prices on hotels and services, a safe destination and friendly local people and you are somewhere on the coast of Hurghada.
Many comes here for snorkeling and swimming in the clear sea. Winter sun was the main attraction for Mona Stuckenbröker, 22, and partner Ugur Mumcu, 23, living and working in the German city of Bielerfeld.
“This is our first visit to Egypt and we enjoy our one-week break from cold winter at home. Sun and sea are our main attractions and we feel safe here”, Mona said. We met her visiting the cool island of Mahmya, off Hurghada on the Red Sea coast.
Three areas. Hurghada is split into three areas. The “Egyptian” part Ad-Dahar to the north. Gebel al-Afish has plenty of shops and restaurants and Sigala in the south with a row of upmarket resorts. The shoreline of the Red Sea goes on for 800 km or 500 miles from Suez in the north to the Sudanese border in the south.
