Sherry Street is one of the biggest side streets in SHERATON STREET. Sheraton Road is probably the longest shopping street in Hurghada. There are also cafes and restaurants among the street. From Sheraton Street, you find everything.
Shops in Sheraton Sheraton Street are for tourists and therefore prices may vary a lot between the stores There are no fixed prices, so prepare yourself to haggle.
THE BEGINNING OF MAMSHA
EL MAMSHA is a beautiful walking boulevard. It’s a place where locals and tourists shop and spend time. It’s a perfect place for a nice evening stroll. While walking down the Mamsha, you can do shopping.
You found big souvenirs shops with fixed prices and smaller shops right next to each other at the beginning of Mamsha. A good place to start shopping in El Mamsha is close to Mc Donalds. There are also nice shops at the end of Mamsha boulevard.
If you don’t mind walking a little bit, start from the beginning and walk to the end of Mamsha. This is what I do often.
EL DAHAR SOUK
Everyone visiting Hurghada should visit El Dahar. It’s the oldest part of the city, where you can experience real Egypt. From El Dahar you find a big souk, which is filled with things from household appliances to scarves.

HURGHADA SHOPPING MALLS
In case you feel uncomfortable with haggling, you can still shop in Hurghada. There are a few big shopping centres in the Hurghada area, where the prices are fixed. I prefer shopping in the shopping centres since I don’t need to buy any souvenirs or other touristic stuff.
SENZO MALL HURGHADA
For me, Senzo Mall is the best place to shop in Hurghada. It is a shopping centre, located about 15 kilometres away from the city centre. It’s open every day from 10.00 am to 12.00 am.
You get there by taxi, microbus or Senzos own shuttle bus (which I recommend). Shuttle bus between to Senzo Mall to Hurghada operates from 10.00 am to 12.15 am (00.15).
Senzo bus goes through Hurghada from Dahar-Sakkala-Mamsha-Senzo and back every 30 minutes. You can hop on and off anywhere. Last time I used it it was 4.75 Egyptian pounds/person/one way. Not super expensive. Compared to taxi it’s very cheap.
Last time it was 70 Egyptian pounds from Sakkala (Hadaba) to Senzo. Going there by taxi is much easier than coming back. Orange taxis are not allowed to drive inside the parking area, so they wait outside next to the gates.

When you leave the mall and want to take a taxi away, you have to negotiate with “a taxi guy” who gives you prices. The prices they ask are ridiculous. Of course, they ask you double comparing what you paid when you came. This is the only place to get a taxi away and they know it.
This is why I recommend you to use Senzo bus. Buses are usually full, but there is always room for everyone. Bus leaves from the door, closest to KIDZO area. When you go outside, you’ll see the place.
You can also order UBER or ABC-taxi to Senzo Mall. I usually order a car close to Kentucky Fried Chicken KFC).
