Directions to Hurghada new marina
It’s relatively easy to get to Hurghada Marina. It’s located at the end of the Sheraton Street when you are coming from Mamsha’s direction (to Google maps click here). You can either walk to the Marina or go with a taxi. If you take a taxi, ask a driver to drive you to Marina and you get there.
When you leave from Marina, don’t take a taxi from outside of the gates.
It’s much easier to walk a few steps back to Sheraton Street and take a taxi from there than negotiate in the Marina with taxi dealers. They have been waiting for you and they know it. You can also order an Uber.
