Things to do
With virtually no chance of rain, get out to the desert. A great way to get across the vast sands is by quad bike. The Top Safari company offers 6 hour quad biking excursions for as little as £25 per person and includes a camel trek and oriental buffet lunch.
Cool down with a trip out to sea in a glass bottomed boat. The Cleopatra provides four trips each day from the Sea Horse Marina next to the Hilton Plaza hotel. This is a great opportunity to see the famous Red Sea coral reefs, as well as starfish, sea urchins, crustaceans and turtles. There’s a bar on board as well.
One of the earliest established diving centres which operates in the Red Sea, Diving World Hurghada is amongst the best in Hurghada. Ideally located to allow easy access to a number of diving sites, Diving World offers a selection of daily dives, outings, courses and night dives which are always a hit. One of the most popular trips includes a guided tour of the reef and lunch onboard the boat, with an optional snorkelling package for those who don’t wish to dive.
