With its family friendly resorts and a great mix of resorts, shops, restaurants and nightlife this once small fishing village has all you need for a fantastic Red Sea trip for all experience levels. Diving from Hurghada will give you the opportunity to witness amazing fringing reefs, reef walls, drop offs and experience some of the Red Sea’s best wreck diving. The Salem Express to the south of Safaga is worth a visit. The wreck sunk in 1991 after hitting the reef at night and over 600 victims perished making it one of the greatest marine tragedies of all time.
From Hurghada you can access the spectacular marine park surrounding the Giftun Islands and Abu Ramada by boat. The stunning and beautiful coloured corals and the huge variety of fish including barracuda, grouper, stingrays and triggerfish will keep you entertained during dives.
