hurghada egypt

Hurghada is located on the west coast of the Red Sea, about 270Km south of Cairo.

Once just a simple fishing village, it has now become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Egypt. There is exceptional diving off the coast of Hurghada and the warm, breezy weather makes it perfect for sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing.

Stay Kempinski Soma Bay, an excellent and good value family resort.

It's a 5 hour 30 minute flight from London to Hurghada. Soma Bay is located just a 45 minute drive from the Hurghada International Airport which receives a large number of flights from Europe.

Weather and seasons

Soma Bay enjoys year round sunshine. Winters are temperate, with daytime temperatures averaging in the low to mid 20º C. Summer temperatures average in the low 30º C.  Soma Bay is therefore comfortable all year, even in summer; more so than most Mediterranean destinations because it's located on the breezy Western side of the Red Sea.


British passport holders travelling to Egypt normally require a visa.

British nationals travelling to Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba resorts for up to 15 days receive a free entry permission stamp upon arrival. If you intend to travel out of the mentioned areas or stay longer than 15 days, you must obtain a visa.

Visas can be obtained from an Egyptian Consulate outside Egypt, or on arrival by payment in Sterling, US Dollars or Euros, for stays of up to a month.
