Originally a fishing village, Hurghada has long since morphed into today’s dense band of resorts and hotels that marches along the coastline for more than 20km. It is a great destination for combining a diving holiday with the Nile Valley sites. Further offshore there is still superb diving aplenty; local NGOs are helping the town clean up its act, and the southern resort area and Sigala's sparklingly modern marina have brought back some of Hurghada's sheen.
