Hurghada

Hurghada and the Red Sea coast enjoy a very moderate weather throughout the year, making it an ideal place for sea sports. Offers are endless and constantly expanding. Whether you are interested in windsurfing, sailing, high sea-fishing, diving, snorkeling, or simply want to relax on the beach. Hurghadas’ offers are very multifaceted.  Tourism is now a huge part of Hurghada and each year, many tourists choose to combine their holiday here with visits to other prominent locations along the Nile Valley, including the relatively nearby city of Luxor. Due to the impressive underwater life of its reefs and islands, as well as the outstanding weather conditions Hurghada represents the most important destination for divers, water sports of all kinds and sunbathers in Egypt.

The climate in Egypt is very pleasant throughout the year. Summers are very hot and dry whilst ‘winter’ is slightly cooler but still warm enough for sunbathing and spending time on the beach. This is the appeal that gives Hurghada a year long tourist season and why visitors flock to this part of the Red Sea Riviera when temperatures drop at home.

Sea temperature rarely drops below 20 c which means that swimming is possible throughout the year and you can get away from the harsh winters than can be experienced in many parts of Europe between November and March. Whilst the height of summer is very hot -sometimes 40 c plus – the ‘Spring’ and ‘Autumn’ seasons are thought by many as the best time to visit Hurghada.

Between April and June, and September till November, the temperatures are warm without being uncomfortable.

The clubs and bars that serve as hosts to the many visitors, many of the resorts and hotels have their own discos and nightclubs, many with weekly shows or planned events that welcome guests and hotel patrons alike.

Some of the resorts plan less youthful and exuberant nighttime activities, which include local musicians and dancers, floor shows and even some lectures about the history and culture of Egypt.

Not a lot of people know that Egypt is not only famous for its ancient monuments, culture and revolution, but it is also famous for its great food. Egyptian food is a mixture of all the different civilizations that came to Egypt in the history of its existence. Nowhere in the world will you be able to taste so many cultures in one plate. Below is a list of the most delicious and popular dishes served up in Egypt today.

Kushari- Considered to be the Egyptian national dish, it consists of pasta and tomato sauce, among other items, including rice, lentils, caramelized onions, garlic and chickpeas. Ful Medames – One of the common staple foods in Egypt, it consists of lava beans served with oil, garlic and lemon juice.

Konafah – Konafah is an Egyptian sweet made of a very thin noodle-like pastry. Konafah is made by drizzling long rows of the thin noodles in their liquid state on a hot plate until they become dry and more rigid. Gibna Domiati – Gibna Domiati is a white soft cheese made in the city of Damietta, in the north of Egypt. It is typically made from buffalo milk but sometimes cow milk is added to the mixture as well. It is the most common cheese found in Egypt.
