El Aheya - district of Hurghada

Al Ahijah (El Ahijah, El Ahja, El Achaea)  is both a resort area and a residential district.  It is located to the north of Hurghada, along the highway leading to El Gouna and the Red Sea coast.

The area is noted for its beautiful sandy beaches, turquoise clear waters, as well as a variety of hotels and private property.

Area Al Ahijah extends along the shoreline for 12-15 km, gradually connecting with Dahar, Hurghada on one side and El Gouna on the other.  The width of the area is small - from 500 to 1000m. Therefore, any house is within walking distance of some of the best beaches, which are excellent for surfing. The coastline also benefits from a shallow, gently sloping flat bed, making it excellent for small children paddling or learning to swim.

Hotels that can be found in this area include: Sweet Home Hurghada, Calimera Panorama Bungalows, Festival Le Jardin, Sunrise Festival, Palm Beach Resort and Sultana. 

In this area you can find some of the best housing complexes with landscaped areas, beaches and parking for yachts.

These residential complexes include El Khayyam and Raballa (built by the youngest son of the Egyptian President). In these well-appointed elite settlements, you have everything you need for a peaceful, relaxing time. 

The area is under development as new hotels, multifunctional residential complexes (Tabiya, Nubia, Pyramiza, Cuff and others), prviate villas, villages and apartments buildings are being constructed. 

Mubarak 7 located in this area is a luxurious modern village, located within walking distance of the sea. Almost every property benefits from wonderful panoramic sea views. Hence, on sunny days which are almost year round, Shedvan island and the mountain contours of the South Sinai are clearly visible.

In the new elite settlement - Cuff (derived from the Arabic word meaning palm), a residential complex 'Comfort Kaff' complete with a swimming pool and shops is being completed.  

In Al Ahijah, new social housing estates - Mubarak -11 are near completion. The highway between Hurghada and El Gouna is being completed restored with new asphalt, interchanges, lighting, road markings, traffic signs, the separation of traffic lanes and landscaping of surrounding areas.
