Hurghada has several activities that are not available anyplace else on the planet. Quad-biking hundreds of miles into the Sahara desert for tea with a Bedoin tribe, followed by camel-riding across Biblical plains to see remote and ancient wonders; diving and snorkeling around a vibrant and colorful coral reef; boat trips to the uninhabited Big and Little Gifton islands; swimming in the warm sea; good shopping; excellent and varied cuisine from around the world, and so on. If you stayed in your hotel complex for the entirety of your vacation, you would be missing out on a lot more than you bargained for.
Those visiting Egypt for the first time may notice that karkaday (a drink produced from an infusion of hibiscus, either hot or cold and said to have numerous health advantages) and chi (a local variant of tea, generally served in a glass) are widely available. Both are tasty and generally come with a smoke on a “sheesha” pipe, often known as a hookah in the West. Sheeshas are used to smoke different flavors of molasses tobacco, with the smoke traveling through water before being inhaled via a long tube linked to the bowl. Despite the fact that they resemble a device used to consume illegal narcotics in the West (a bong), sheesha is fully legal.
Travel across the Red Sea to the deserted island of Giftun, which is encircled by enchanted coral gardens. Spend the day relaxing on the white beach or swimming amid the coral reefs. This fantastic day excursion is not to be missed if you are in Hurghada.
In the evening, take a stroll down the seafront for some classic cafés, shopping, or eating. A bowling alley and a family entertainment center are nearby, as are a few stores and eateries. The nightlife generally starts late, and there are various clubs near to the promenade.
