The town of Hurghada, known as Al- Ghardaka in Arabic was founded in the early 20th century as a fishing village, with over 40km of coastal resorts and spectacular beaches. The Red Sea Riviera has fast become a community of mixed nationalities and cultures. The permanent summer weather and leisure activities, including desert safaris, diving and golf, make this the most popular resort in Egypt.
With its crystal clear water, untouched reefs and a multitude of ship-wrecks, Hurghada has become one of the most popular diving and snorkeling destinations in the world. Nearby lies the resort El Gouna, an exclusive destination offering residents and tourists fantastic views of the desert, mountains and natural lagoons. At the heart of the El Gouna Resort is the Abu Tig Marina, the most beautiful harbour on the Red Sea designed around the spectacular El Gouna Golf Club, an 18-hole, PGA professional golf course.
