Overview

Welcome to the wonderful tourist city of Hurghada! Before we start our walk through the city, we want to give you some details about the resort.

The resort is 305 kilometers from Luxor and 455 kilometers from Cairo, the capital of Egypt. Hurghada was founded in the early 20th century. For many decades it was a small fishing village, but it became a major resort on the Red Sea, due to Egyptian and foreign investment that began in the 1980s. Resorts and hotels offer facilities for windsurfing, kitesurfing, yachting, scuba diving and snorkeling. Hurghada stretches for about 36 km along the coast, but does not reach far into its desert.

The first hotel built in the region was the Sheraton Hotel on Felfela Road. The main period of tourism development began in the 1990s and continues today. The total number of hotels today has reached 200, including modest 2-star accommodation units, as well as luxury properties.

The city of Hurghada is divided into three areas – Sheraton Road, El Dahar and Promenade.
