Get in line to experience a unique coastal city filled with many wonders. With its pleasant climate and sprawling beaches, Hurghada is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist destinations in Egypt. Interestingly enough, the city was only founded at the beginning of the last century! What was once recognizable as a small fishing village, now attracts tourists from all over the world! Its natural islands not only provide ideal diving spots in the Red Sea, but they also make a thriving environment for rare flora and fauna. Today, you get to enjoy a fantastic set of resorts where the culture of Egypt shines through. Moreover, you will also be given an opportunity to try a variety of water sports.

With a population of about 240,000 citizens and with a lovely view of the Red Sea to the east, a pedestrian road that stretches for a few miles, and so much more, Hurghada should definitely be your next destination. Resorts, hotels, restaurants – this city has all that you can name. And without further ado, let’s look into the marvelous city of Hurghada.


What tourists seem to love most about this part of Egypt is that the climate is considered pleasant throughout the year. The temperatures are quite agreeable, regardless of whether you wish to pay a visit in the winter or during summer. Because of the subtropical desert climate, the summers are extremely hot and dry, while the winters are warm and sunny. The average temperature is 24°C / 76.0 °F, being highest in August 36°C / 96°F, and lowest in January 9°C / 47 °F. If you are one of those people who want to revel in the heat, then plan your travel itinerary between the months of April and October. On the other hand, if you are looking for a laid-back and pleasantly warm vacation, then think about the winter months as your best time to travel.

Fact about Hurghada

  • The name Hurghada comes from a plant that had grown naturally in that specific area in ancient times.

  • Oil was discovered in abundance in 1913 but extraction did not start until almost a decade later, in 1920.

  • Up until its creation as a large resort city in 1980, Hurghada was a small fishing village.

Brief History

Once a small village, the now world-famous city of Hurghada was first created in 1905. As we just mentioned above, this village’s citizens discovered plenty of oil in the area, but it took them about eight years to start drilling and exporting it.

Since then, several conflicts have affected this city, the main one being when it was fortified by Egyptian troops and used as a radar post. Throughout history, it has been a target of many operations, but thankfully, in 1980, the dust had settled, and people started focusing on the development of the city that is well-known today.

Today, Hurghada is one of the biggest foreign and domestic tourism sports in Egypt. Thanks to the incredible landscape, the far-stretching beaches, the clear waters, and the wonderful climate, it has become incredibly popular among tourists from all over the world.

Travel Tips

As a tourist, you might be advised to only drink bottled water. Abide by that recommendation. You can find bottled water anywhere – in supermarkets, stores, and cafes. We also recommend that you avoid drinking cocktails with ice.

Even though you can pay anywhere with the Egyptian national currency, many shops and restaurants will allow you to pay in dollars and euros, as well. If you have come to Hurghada for a shopping trip, we recommend having at least a few currencies.

For nightlife lovers, there are many local bars and discos, and most of them have an entrance fee. But, in most of them, the entrance fee comes as a prepaid bill, and you can get your drink at the bar!

Pay attention to the dress code. Although the strict dress code requirements do not apply to tourists, we recommend that you wear modest clothing to avoid unwanted attention.
