Hurghada, Egypt was founded in the beginning of the 20th century and had always been known to be a tiny fishing village until the recent years. Today though, it is one of the foremost beach resorts for tourists along the Red Sea coast. There’s the Soma Bay, Safaga, and El Gouna. The whole city is an international center for water sports where you can sail, windsurf, swim, snorkel, and dive to your heart’s delight. It has unique underwater gardens offshore which are certainly some of the world’s finest. A lot of rare fish varieties are found here as well as coral reefs because the warm waters are ideal of them to thrive. You can enjoy their splendor by riding on glass bottom boats.
