The once sleepy fishing village of Hurghada has become a big fish in Red Sea tourism. Now a foremost beach resort town stretching some 25 miles along Egypt’s Red Sea coast, it’s renowned for scuba diving. Check out the old quarter (El Dahar) and consider combining a diving holiday there with Nile Valley sightseeing.

On the Fringes of the Sahara

By Linda Tancs

Mushrooms. Ice cream cones. Giant pebbles. The desert has a way of making you see things. That’s no less so at the White Desert. On the fringes of the Sahara some 300 miles southwest of Cairo, the desert is a national park of Egypt. It’s best known for its peculiar wind-carved chalk rock formations (hence, the mushroom reference) arising from centuries of erosion and sandstorms. Local Bedouins are available for guided tours.
