Hurghada is a main tourist center and second largest city (after Suez) in Egypt located on the Red Sea coast. The city lies at the entrance of the Gulf of Suez, an arm of the Red Sea giving access to the Suez Canal. The city was founded in the early 20th century, and since the 1980s has been continually enlarged by investors to become the leading seashore resort on the Red Sea. Holiday villages and hotels provide water sport facilities for sailboarders, yachtsmen, scuba divers and snorkelers. Hurghada is a narrow stretc exteding for about 36 kilometres between the seashore and the desert backdrop-
Although a town in its own right, Hurgada’s current major industry is tourism, owing to its dramatic landscape, year-round dry and temperate climate and long stretches of beautiful natural beaches and islands. Its waters are clear and calm for most of the year and offer the prefect conditions for various watersports, particularly scuba diving and snorkelling.
