hurghada international centre for aquatic sports

Hurghada was once a quiet fishing village, but over the last twenty years, it has become the leading seashore resort on the Red Sea. Holiday villages and hotels provide aquatic sport facilities for sailboarders, yachtsmen, scuba divers and snorkellers, as well as 36km of pure beaches on which to relax before adventuring
beneath the Red Sea to seek out underwater treasures.

Today’s active lifestyles demand that tourists can find exciting and challenging activities to enjoy on holiday, and Hurghada provides a perfect blend of engaging daytime pursuits and vibrant nightlife.

Hurghada has become an international centre for aquatic sports such as windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing, swimming, but above all for some of the most spectacular diving and snorkelling in the whole world. The underwater gardens are amazing with a wide range of rare fish and coral reefs. If you are a diving enthusiast, or someone who would love to see what diving has to offer, Hurghada has simply the finest diving you will find. Whether you are an experienced diver looking for the ultimate locations, a novice keen to try diving for the first time, or somewhere in between and looking to learn more, Hurghada has exactly what you need. With PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) qualified instructors at a host of diving centres, you will find a diving experience to cater for your needs.

For those wishing to enjoy the sights beneath the Red Sea without learning to scuba dive, snorkelling is also popular in Hurghada, and is possible with a less demanding learning curve, although safety and orientation courses are given, and allows for underwater viewing up close in shallow water. Owing to its central location, the city provides a gateway to diving sites throughout the Red Sea, and is also known for providing access to many uninhabited offshore reefs and islands. It really is paradise for anyone with an appreciation of the underwater world. As well as the newer parts of Hurghada, don’t miss the chance to spend time appreciating the charm and character of the older parts of the city like Sakkala and Ad Dahhar. Back on dry land, Hurghada is well-served by beautiful hotels, where guests can enjoy spa facilities, massages and beautiful beaches from which sailing, windsurfing, deep sea fishing, kitesurfing, pedal boats and waterskiing are available. For those who would rather view the undersea beauty without getting wet, glass-bottomed boat trips are a great way to see the sights. By night, Hurghada shifts up a gear and reveals its famous nightlife, including the Ministry of Sound Beach Club, as well as the discos and entertainment on offer at most of the city’s hotels. Restaurants range from those serving traditional Arabic food to chains familiar to western visitors, including Hard Rock Café.
