31/50.- Red Sea, Hurghada
Today Hurghada is the first tourist
destination in Egypt's Red Sea. The town is changing quickly. Only
15 years ago Hurghada was a small fishing village with two hotels. Today there are more than 100 hotels, several restaurants, pubs and
night clubs; and many new ones are currently being built.
Hurghada's world wide fame comes from its waters. There is no
aquatic sport that can not be practiced
here: windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing, swimming, but, above
all, snorkeling and diving. During the high season (from November
to February), the town is invaded by Europeans. Not bad, if we think
that Hurghada was founded in the 20th century.
