Hurghada The Essential
People come to this seaside resort on the coast of the Red Sea to appreciate the marine life and coral reef, but unfortunately the city itself is something of a concrete jungle. A string of about 20 islands is scattered across the transparent waters, alongside the Gubal Strait. The miles of beaches (most of which are private) attract indolent holidaymakers. Get on board the Sindbad Submarine and enjoy a 2hr ride through the coral reefs, which are considered among the most beautiful in the world.
