Hurghada - the Riviera of the Red Sea is near to the eastern desert, south of Sinai, and is a costal region with beautiful beaches that blend into the Red Sea. The temperatures in Hurghada are pleasant throughout the year, however, the desert climate means there are high temperature fluctuations between day and night. The days are hot and the nights can be very cold, especially in the winter months.
Nevertheless, the Red Sea with its pleasant water temperatures, stunning soft coral, untouched reefs and thousands of colourful fish is one of the best and most fascinating diving regions, and is a perfect place for diving all year round. A dive down to the caves of the Careless Reef more than 40 m deep is an absolute highlight for experienced divers. Immerse yourself in the impressive underwater world and forget your daily routine with a holiday in Hurghada.
Yet Hurghada is not only for divers as there is also plenty on offer for water sports enthusiasts, golfers and swimmers. Go on an excursion in a glass bottom boat and marvel at the amazing underwater world of the Red Sea. If you are a nature enthusiast you’ll love St. Johannes Islands in Elba National Park, which will reveal the variety of bird species in the Red Sea region. With a little luck you will be able to watch a sooty falcon as it dives from a lofty height like a bullet into the reef to catch a fish.
Simply relax and enjoy yourself on the long sandy beaches of Hurghada, or have fun with the variety of sports and entertainment on offer.
Breath in deeply and cast your eyes across the turquoise water and stunning costal scenery of Mikadi Bay on the Red Sea. The luxurious seaside resort of Makadi is located in a beautiful natural bay about 35 km from Hurghada. Makadi Bay is captivating with its fantastic sandy beaches that are perfect for long walks, and its unbelievable underwater world that is great for snorkelling and diving.
But maybe you’re looking for the ultimate relaxation? Then take a wellness day and allow yourself to be pampered from head to toe. The "Gold Spa" has an extensive wellness offering with peelings, massages and other treatments.
Golfers too get their money's worth in Madinat Makadi – on a rise inland from the holiday resort is the Madinat 18-hole golf course set in a beautiful landscape.
Makadi Bay is also a great place for culinary delicacies.
