Baklava: For desert be sure to try some Baklava, famous in most Arabic countries it's famous for its amazing flavour and was once only for royalty however, today it’s a pudding served after most evening meals and especially popular through the holidays.
Egyptian food is so delicious you won't be able to get enough of it. A combination of Middle Eastern, North African, Greek and French influences makes up the flavours that we taste in Egyptian Cuisine. Although the majority of people who visit Hurghada choose All Inclusive you really must spend some time out of your hotel sampling some of the food in a local restaurant. Whether it’s a small café or a traditional restaurant or even a street cart.
Koshari: Egypt's national dish is Koshari made with macaroni, lentils, chickpeas and rice along with a tomato sauce which is served in all restaurants guaranteed to give your tastebuds a journey especially when you add a dash of hot sauce.
Hurghada is surrounded by Desert and you must spend some time exploring throughout your stay. One of the best things to do in the heart of the desert is visiting a Bedouin village to feel the ancient spirits. Learn about the different culture and the lifestyle of the Bedouins. Spending an evening under the stars in a Bedouin tent will be one of the highlights of your holiday. Sit around a campfire enjoying a traditional Bedouin dinner being entertained by folk songs and traditional entertainment.
If you want something a little bit more exhilarating then why not join a 4x4 jeep experience off road through the desert to get your heart racing and pulse jumping. One of the best ways to experience the desert is by enjoying a traditional camel ride. Traveling in style like the Bedouins on the back of a one humped camel is a memorable experience for any holiday to Hurghada.
Hurghada sits on the Red Sea and has some of the world's leading diving locations. Soma Bay, El Gouna, Makadi Bay and Hurghada are all excellent areas to experience the underwater world.

We recommend that you book excursions with PADI diving schools to ensure your comfort and safety.
