Diving in Hurghada

This city of Hurghada was a small fishing village until as recently as the 1980s when it was transformed but investors into a major resort town thanks to its location on the Red Sea. Today it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Egypt.

Hurghada has become a leading diving location with Soma Bay, Hurghada, Makadi Bay, and El Gouna all excellent diving locations. Whether you want to explore on day dives or join a liveaboard to venture to sites that are further afield, you can do it all from here. The reefs are teeming with marine life and there are also some fascinating wrecks to explore. The conditions here are ideal for those who are learning to dive and even children can try out the sport, but there are still those deeper, more advanced sites where the current is stronger and experienced divers will be in their element.

There is also so much to do and see in the city when divers are out of the water. The coast is home to long stretches of beautiful beaches that overlook the clear and calm water of the Red Sea and are buttressed from the desert behind them by holiday villages and resorts.
