    If you're looking to chill with a cocktail right next to the sea, this palm-thatched pontoon over the water has a laid-back atmosphere made for lounging. Once the sun has set there's often live music or parties. You have to walk through the Bella Vista Hotel to get here.

    El Mashrabia

    This is our favourite pit stop in Hurghada for a juice, shai (tea) or shisha. El Mashrabia is slap on Sigala's main road, with shady outdoor seating and a dimly lit cafe decorated in a mishmash of Chinese lanterns and Pharaonic art. It's easy to spot – the facade is decorated with fake mashrabiyya (wooden lattice) windows.
