Three days in Hurghada allow you to experience the natural wonders and adventures of the Red Sea, enjoy the city’s attractions, and discover the surrounding desert. You’ll also have time to venture farther afield, with trips to Cairo or Luxor. Here’s how.
The majority of Red Sea boat tours depart from the marina. Options range from snorkeling excursions to the Giftun Islands; glass-bottom, submarine, and dolphin-watching tours; watersports; and scuba diving trips. The marina is a common start point for desert safaris and also features on many Hurghada city tours, which typically include time to shop and sightsee. Other popular marina-based activities include 1001 Arabian Nights-themed shows and waterfront dinner-and-transfer packages.
