Hurghada – a gateway to Egypt's sparkling Red Sea Coast

Sitting on the Red Sea coast, Hurghada lures sun seekers with golden beaches and a glitzy marina.

Hurghada is also just a stone's throw from the Nile Valley, which makes it a great base for travelers who want to throw a splash of history into a beach-centric vacation. Planning an Egyptian getaway? With Hurghada vacation rentals, you can unlock access to a stunning lineup of properties, complete with private pools and sun-drenched terraces.

Things to do

Discover Hurghada's incredible underwater ecosystem

Nowhere captures the beauty of the Red Sea quite like the Giftun Islands. They're part of a marine reserve and are sprinkled with kaleidoscopic dive sites, including Banana Reef and Sha'ab Sabrina. Don't forget your dive log, because you'll be spotting leopard sharks, rays, turtles, tropical fish and more. Craving a resort style getaway? Hurghada vacation rentals showcase a great selection of apartments in luxury complexes. Some put you just steps from Hurghada Marina, where you can admire superyachts, stroll along the promenade and sip on sunset cocktails at a waterfront bar.


Beach days, camel safaris and stargazing in Hurghada

Hurghada's best beaches are maintained by oceanfront resorts. Hurghada vacation rentals make it easy to claim your patch of sand, with a great selection of condos in luxury complexes. Don't want to get your feet wet? Step aboard the Sinbad Submarine, which features panoramic windows, comfortable seating and the capacity to get you more than 70 feet under the sea. Beyond the beach, Hurghada offers plenty of land-based adventures. You can speed through the Eastern Desert on a quad bike tour, visit traditional Bedouin villages, ride camels along golden sand dunes and spend an evening stargazing.


A sun-splashed Christmas in Hurghada

Hurghada enjoys a sultry climate throughout the year, with temperatures rarely dropping below the 70s. Warm water and crystal-clear visibility mean summers are best for scuba diving, though it is possible at any time of the year. While evenings are balmy, the occasional breeze does roll in off the Red Sea, so don't forget to pack layers. The Christmas holidays are eternally popular with families. Whether you're looking for spacious villas or multi-bedroom apartments, Hurghada vacation rentals provide a dream setting for sun-splashed family memories.

Escape to the "Red Sea Riviera" in Hurghada

Hurghada is perched on Egypt's Red Sea Coast, known for gorgeous beaches and incredible diving. While the Giftun Islands are world-famous, Gota Abu Ramada – nicknamed the Aquarium – is another dazzling dive site. Starting at depths of just 10 feet, it features a rainbow-colored coral garden filled with butterfly fish, sweetlips and barracudas. You can also make a splash at Stingray Station, a vibrant reef plateau where you can spot leopard sharks, tropical fish and, of course, rays.
