Hurghada Photo Gallery

Egypt's Red Sea coastline stretches over 1200km, with Hurghada being a major tourist centre with resort hotels to take advantage of the turquoise waters. The well-manicured, clean enclave edged between the Eastern Desert and the Red Sea seemed so artificial and posh.

The Red Sea coast has been developed into exclusive resorts, so the average person could not actually access the beach without paying to stay in a resort, or via a paid beach.

Luckily, my resort had its own little piece of coastline exclusive for our use.

Boat excursions for diving just offshore are readily available, although I had a desert adventure in mind for my day.

I heard a lot of Russian amongst the tourist crowds here. It is a good winter escape nearby for them as well.
