Packing for Hurghada

Packing for bright skies, poolside relaxing, and outdoor adventures is a must. While the majority of Egypt is conservative, with women obliged to cover their knees and shoulders, this is not the case in tourist destinations. While on Hurghada Holidays, you won’t have to worry about covering yourself. Don’t forget to bring the following items:

For days spent relaxing by the pool, bring sunscreen, a cover-up, a swimsuit, and a brimmed hat.

Remember to bring your scuba diving equipment since diving in the Red Sea is world-class or you can buy there whatever you want if you don’t want to carry that heavy equipment. If you’re not a huge diver, you might only want to carry snorkeling equipment.

Tennis shoes and gym clothes for the gym could be a part of your luggage. Evenings spent dining in your Hurghada resort restaurants or enjoying the nighttime entertainment should be dressed in slacks, dresses, and button-up shirts.
