Hurghada is the beach resort city of Egypt that stretches along the Red Sea for 40 kilometers. The city is located 600 kilometers away from the capital city Cairo, at the south end of the Gulf of Suez. Hurghada used to be a small fishing village in the 1900s until the discovery of oil in 1913. After the production of oil, the city gradually became richer and richer. Eventually, Hurghada started to attract international attention thanks to its gorgeous beaches and sea around the 1970s. Now, the city is one of the most prominent scuba diving and snorkeling centers in the world.
