Hurghada, a small fishing village in the early 20th century, grew into a major Red Sea resort as Egyptian and foreign investments poured in since the 1980s. The city offers facilities for windsurfing, kitesurfing, yachting, scuba diving, and snorkeling at its holiday resorts and hotels. Hurghada attracts Europeans with its watersports, nightlife and warm weather. The city enjoys daytime temperatures around 30 °C (86 °F) most of the year, and over 40 °C (104 °F) during July and August. Many tourists spend Christmas and New Year there.
