How to Spend 3 Days in Hurghada

How to Spend 3 Days in Hurghada

Three days in Hurghada allow you to experience the natural wonders and adventures of the Red Sea, enjoy the city’s attractions, and discover the surrounding desert. You’ll also have time to venture farther afield, with trips to Cairo or Luxor. Here’s how. 

Day 1: Red Sea Waters and Desert Sands

The Red Sea is Hurghada’s star attraction, so immerse yourself in its waters. For spectacular snorkeling, join a full-day trip to coral gardens, islands, and dolphin habitats. Scuba dive trips that cater to both beginners and experienced divers run to places such as Giftun Island. Alternatively, step aboard a fully equipped boat and spend the day fishing for some of the Red Sea’s 1,000 species, such as grouper and snapper. Later, make tracks for Hurghada’s desert. Cross the plains on an ATV, or choose a tour with multiple activities, such as camel rides and Bedouin encounters. Many extend into the evening, with dinner and belly-dancing shows beneath the stars.

Day 2: Day Trip to Cairo or Luxor

Take a (long) day or overnight trip to Cairo or Luxor, by air or road. Perhaps go overland to Cairo to see the Giza Pyramids and Egyptian Museum, home to Tutankhamun’s treasures. Closer by is Luxor, the capital of Egypt during pharaonic times and the location of the Valley of the Kings, Karnak, and more. If you’re not planning a return to Egypt any time soon, it might make sense to visit both Cairo and Luxor in one 2-day trip. Fly to Cairo in the morning and spend the day touring before flying on to Luxor for overnight and to explore its big-ticket sights the next day.

Day 3: From Sights to Sports

Spend your final day exploring Hurghada’s sights, such as St. Maria Church and old mosques, on a city tour, then let rip at a cable water park, bouncing across the waves on a wakeboard. Alternatively, slow the pace with a glass-bottom boat or submarine ride to see the underwater world without getting soaked. Other options include a day out at family favorite Aqua Jungle Park, with 35 chutes, 14 pools, and other attractions. Finally, round off your trip with a dinner-and-show excursion. Savor a traditional Egyptian dinner before watching an outdoor Arabian fantasia show of acrobatic horse-riding displays, folkloric dancing, stunts, and music.
