Hurghada

Originally a small fishing town on the Red Sea coast, Hurghada developed into Egypt's premier beach destination thanks to its year-round sunny weather and world-class dive sites.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Mosque El Mina Masjid and Sharm El Naga. Museum-lovers will get to explore Sand City and Selkhet Papyrus. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 29th (Thu) at Makadi Water World. There's still lots to do: make a splash at Jungle Aqua Park, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, pause for some serene contemplation at Coptic Cathedral of Saint Shenouda, and trot along with Habiba Horse.

For where to stay, photos, ratings, and tourist information, read Hurghada trip itinerary website.

Brussels, Belgium to Hurghada is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of car and train. Traveling from Brussels to Hurghada, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Brussels in March, with highs in Hurghada at °C and lows at °C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 31st (Sat) to allow time for the bus ride to Luxor.
