Originally a small fishing village, the town of Hurghada in northern Egypt has recently enlarged due to interest and investment from Egyptian and foreign investors and is now one of the Red Sea's leading sea side resorts. The resort has become known as one of Europe's leading centres for water sports, with various windsurfing, kiting, sailing and diving activities being run along the 40 km coastline. It is also a centre for those wanting to visit the world renowned diving spots of the Red Sea. The city itself is divided into three areas: two modern areas, Sekalla and El Korra Road, (the later being the more modern of the two) and downtown, El Dahar, which is the old part of town.
Once a small fishing village, the harbour is now a beautiful modern area of Hurghada.
Summer is the best time to visit Hurghada, it transforms into a buzzing and vibrant sea side resort with the street side cafes and bars a hub of activity. Summers are long, and really begin to heat up come middle of May, by July the average daily highs have reached 35 ÂșC. The city really fills up come summer time, after all it is a sea side resort so the summer months are the greatest attraction to tourists, so be sure to book ahead if visiting during this time- particular in July and August which coincide with the European school holidays. The heat can get somewhat oppressive in the midst of summer, with average highs sitting at s sweltering 37 ÂșC in July and August, and minimums only fall to 28 ÂșC- not exactly a break from the heat! Temperatures of over 30 ÂșC and into the mid 30's last well into October, and even December sees maximums of 23 ÂșC. Be sure to some prepared with plenty of light cotton clothing and sunscreen, and drink plenty of water otherwise you will be at risk of falling victim to heat stroke.

The 'winter' is hardly a winter, with the coldest month of January seeing average highs of 22 ÂșC and lows fall to 12 ÂșC- so you will not really need anything more than a light jacket to keep you self warm in the evenings. The city is the second largest tourist destination in all of Egypt, and because of its enviable location it is possible to swim all year round here, so it Hurghada can make for a great winter escape. The surrounding desert only just reaches into the city, so temperatures, whilst very hot in the summer months, are not as oppressive as other parts of the country.
