Likewise, the Three Corners Sunny Beach Hotel encourages guests to take part in the conservation and environmental care process by following energy-saving measures in their electricity and water usage.Prior to the 1970s, however, Hurghada was little more than a small, quiet fishing village. It wasn’t until the 1980s that the area’s water-sports potential came to light, drawing investors from around the region. As Hurghada quickly grew into a resort centre, its tourism infrastructure strengthened. Today there are dozens of top-notch Hurghada resorts, many of which balance the area’s growing development against a commitment to sustainability and responsible tourism. The Golden Five Paradise Resort, for example, enforces strict water-sports regulations designed to protect the fragile coral reefs that line its beaches.
