    The city of Hurghada is another major tourist attraction in Egypt. This city draws more than 2.5 million visitors every year, and yields more than 3 billion dollars to Egypt’s economy.  Hurghada is located on the Red Sea coast, almost 550 Km from Cairo. Egyptian’s used to call it Ghardaka, from which the name of the city was derived.  Hurghada stretches for about 60 Km along the Red Sea coast, and has more than 80,000 inhabitants: mostly immigrants from Upper Egypt, seeking investment and work opportunities in the this newly developed sea resort. Hurghada today has more than 170 hotels and it is still developing.

Average temperature from March to November ranges from 26C to 29C, and in the hottest summer months the temperature can reach 33C.

The main tourist attraction in Hurghada is the marine life, with lots of coral and colourful fish, which is located very close to the shore: Hurghada has some of the finest coral in the world. If you like to practice diving, then Hurghada, or Sharm El-Sheikh, are your places to go, Hurghada also has many offshore islands, such as: Sheduan Island  Gifton Island  Umm Gammae Dishet El-Dhaba  Abu Ramada Island  Abu Minqar Island.
    Hurghada today is a world center for sea sports such as diving, snorkeling, sailing, windsurfing, and deep-sea fishing.
