The city of Hurghada is one of the main Egyptian tourist attractions in the country as there is no better place than the heavenly resort where you can truly enjoy the beauty of the red sea. It stretches about 36 km (22 mi) along the seashore but too far into the desert and acts as a resort for native Egyptians from all over the country and especially foreign tourists as well. The city has a population of 248,000 inhabitants and divvied into the modern part of the city El Kawsar, El Ahia, and El Helal the Northern Part, Sekalla the city center, El Dahar a.k.a Downtown and El Memsha, and a village pedestrian road stretching over 4 KM.
The history of Hurghada dated to 1905 when this heavenly resort was nothing more than just a simple fishing village but in 1913 everything about this blissful place changed when the Egyptian government and various foreign international companies invested in Hurghada in the late 50s by building hotels and inner resort transforming the entire city into a true international tropical attraction that showcases the most majestic underwater life of beautiful coral reefs and wonderful sea creatures across the most attractive diving spots on earth.
