Best Beaches in Hurghada
Hurghada is a city which has spread 20 kilometres along the Red Sea coastline. Unfortunately, big hotel complexes cover the sea view very effectively and this is why it’s possible to visit in Hurghada without seeing the Red Sea at all. It’s not likely, but it’s possible.
Most of the hotels have their private beach, so if you stay in a hotel in , most likely you have free access to a private beach. These beaches are usually very nice but they are also clean and safe. In Hurghada, you get to enjoy the best parts of the Red Sea’s crystal clear waters.

So, it’s possible to swim and scuba-dive in the Red Sea all year round. Red Sea is one of the reasons you should travel to Hurghada, Egypt.

I don’t wonder why since it’s clean and safe. Also the atmosphere there is awesome. Dream beach is the best beach for couples and friends.
For the families with small kids, Dream beach is not the best choice, because the beach in Hurghada area is quite small and the beach becomes deep fast.
But there are others things to do for the kids: a playing area and small grass field where the kids can play and run.
Sun beds are comfortable and there are lots of them. The layout of sun beds in Dream Beach is different from what you probably have used to.

Felfala beach by the Old Sheraton Road
Felfala is on of the best beaches in Hurghada my Favorite place . admire a beautiful sunset by the sea for free, I know a perfect place for it. At Old Sheraton Road, opposite to Granada Restaurant, next to Sunrise hotel. There you find a small bay, where locals go fishing, swimming and hang out.
The bay is a closed area and people are not allowed to go inside the gates. If you enter inside the area, you do it with your own responsibility.
