What to do in Sharm
Sharm has excellent dive sites suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experts, including world-renowned sites. Ras Mohammed, to the south of the resort, is one of the best places in the world for wreck diving. At the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba, the Straits of Tiran are home to rays, dolphins and turtles. For the less active, there's a good selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars in Naama Bay, plus great local excursions also available.
Where to stay in Sharm
Sharm is made up of a series of small resorts. Naama Bay is the main resort, with hotels, restaurants, shops and bars, plus dive centres overlooking the sandy, gently shelving beach. To the north, the areas of Ras Nasrani and Nabq Bay are more peaceful and slowly developing, while to the south, Ras Um Sid and Old Sharm are only a short ride from Naama Bay. As hotels can be up to 20 minutes drive from Naama Bay, choose your location carefully!
Holiday ideas to Sharm
Spend a week or two relaxing in Sharm el Sheikh, taking a diving course, snorkelling or sampling local cuisine and dancing the night away. Alternatively, start with a few nights in Cairo before moving on to Sharm for the rest of your holiday. Combining Sharm with the Nile Valley is a little trickier, due to poor internal flight connections.
Sharm El Sheikh lies at the southern tip of the Sinai peninsula, where the desert merges with the beautifully clear waters of the Red Sea. Rapidly becoming the most popular resort on the Red Sea, Sharm offers a great range of activities, and is world-renowned for diving. The combination of water sports, quality accommodation and good facilities in a laid-back atmosphere combine to make Sharm one of the most popular destinations on the coast.
Getting to Sharm el Sheikh
Sharm el Sheikh airport is the most regularly served of Egypt’s Red Sea airports from the UK, with direct flights from around the UK year-round. The airport is 15-30 minutes transfer from most Sharm el Sheikh hotels, with Dahab being around an hour further north.
Sharm airport has frequent flight connections from Cairo and Luxor, making Cairo plus Sharm el Sheikh and Luxor & Nile cruise plus Sharm holidays easy.
