Swiss Hurghada Resort (Ex Hilton) is a front-runner when it comes to location. Its beachside location is its starring attraction, which means watersports and unbeatable views are yours for the taking. Not far from the resort’s modern marina, switch things up and experience some authentic Egyptian cooking at a waterside restaurant or wander towards the old town and witness a less-developed Hurghada.
