Hurghada Marina Boulevard - exclusive harbour promenade

If you're travelling to Hurghada, Egypt, don't miss out on the Hurghada Marina Boulevard. The marina in Hurghada is a peaceful oasis with a beautiful promenade, long rows of magnificent luxury yachts and plenty of restaurants and outdoor cafes. The city's fish market and the large Al Mina mosque are also close by.


One day trip to Hurghada

After several days on the Zeytouna Beach Island in El Gouna we wanted to look around the neighbourhood. We visited Hurghada in 2005, but were curious to see what we would think of the city now, so we took a taxi. We start by telling you about the new marina, which was one of the places we visited.

Hurghada Marina Boulevard, or Hurghada's new marinais a slightly more luxurious area of the city. The colourful houses with holiday apartments are modern and the large luxury yachts are densely packed. As you walk along the quayside promenade, you pass countless restaurants and bars, as well as designer shops and bazaars.

Restaurants along Hurghada Marina Boulevard

We arrived at Hurghada Marina Boulevard at lunchtime and were hungry. We simply chose the first best place (Che Guevara) and ordered a beer and a simple dish each. The food may not have been surprising, but the view and environment were certainly not bad. Nice atmosphere! In total there are around ten restaurants, and almost as many cafés/bars.

Nearby: Hurghada Fish Market

If you go to Hurghada Marina Boulevard, you can also check out the Hurghada Fish Market, which is right next door. There are lots of fishing boats here, and we were told that the fishermen go out on these for a week at a time and sleep in the little bunk at the front. The catch is then sold at the market, and it is really fascinating to look around among all the exciting and colourful fish here.

Nearby: Al Mina Mosque

Next to the fish market is the large Al Mina mosque, which is really beautiful with its domes and towers. We were content to see the mosque from the outside, but it is also open to visitors. As a woman, you have to wear covering clothes to enter, but it is possible to borrow suitable clothes near the mosque.

How to get to Hurghada Marina Boulevard

Hurghada Marina Boulevard is located at Sakala Square, about 5 kilometres from El Dahar Square in central Hurghada. We got from El Dahar by Uber, which is a very affordable, convenient and reliable option for getting around the centre of Hurghada.

However, when we went back, the app signalled that we were "outside the pick-up area", so we took a regular taxi instead. This also works great, but is a bit more expensive.
