A secret spot where old and new shack up together
There are treasures to be plundered on land and in the sea at Egypt's resort town. Hurghada sprawls along the Red Sea coast where twinkling waves hide Finding Nemo coral reef kingdoms. Landlubber? No woz, there are sandy sculpture parks with massive Pharaoh heads and in El Dahar (Old Town) souks and stalls spill out onto the street next to old school Egyptian coffee shops.
A holiday in Hurghada will see you snorkelling or scuba diving in the Red Sea coral reefs, surrounded by an abundance of fish.
