Hurghada map of Egypt maps

Hurghada ("Gardaga") was just a small fishing city by the Red Sea until it became the first destination developed as an Egyptian major Red Sea resort. Today its the largest Egyptian resort city by the Red Sea.

She got a central location by the Egyptian Eastern Desert, with car it's only three and a half hours drive to Luxor with her monuments by the Nile (via Safaga) and about five hours drive to Cairo and the grand pyramids (via Suez). There is an important international airport here, but most traveling with regular flight come here via Cairo. With just a fifteen minutes drive from El Gouna, its also a place frequently visited by those staying in El Gouna's hotels.

Many tours goes from Hurghada and inside the mountain area of the Eastern Desert where mines back to Pharaonic times are found. On the way to Cairo is the legendary monasteries of St. Antonius and St. Macarius. St. Antonius (251 - 356 B.C) is considered the founder of monasticism in Christianity, so roots back to his cave north of Hurghada is strong in the Western world. A "key word" here can be the painting "The Temptation of Saint Anthony" by the truly unique artist Jheronimus Bosch (1480-1510).

Most famous for those going here, is today still the Red Sea with its coral reefs, colorful fish life, diving - or just relaxation on the beach. A tour on the Red Sea is a must, and there are many islands around you will get to on most tours from Hurghada. The night life is also a own story here - most hotels have own entertainment from live music to disco, and restaurants and bars are found all over the city.
