Things to do in Sharm El-Sheikh

Sharm El-Sheikh, a beautiful Egyptian city which is located in the southern part of the Sinai Peninsula. The city and holiday resort is an important center for the tourism industry in Egypt, drawing many global conferences and diplomatic agreements.

Sharm El Sheikh

Sharm El-Sheikh is the administrative center of the South Sinai Governorate and it is considered one of the most important cities to be visited for relaxing after the regular Egypt tours.
Extended for over 20 km on the coast of the Sinai Peninsula, Sharm El-Sheikh is famous among snorkelers and scuba divers. It rises on a bay that opens onto a rocky projection, on one side there is the sea and on the other the mountain. The beach is bordered by an avenue adjoined by palm trees, which opens onto bars, cafes, and restaurants. Despite the growing number of tourists, the widened reef still overflows with extraordinary marine creatures.

Sharm is divided into two parts: to the south is the city with the port, and about 7 km to the north is the famous Naama Bay, the luxury tourist complex. It offers the most varied water activities, from sailing lessons, windsurfing, and parasailing pulled by motorboat to the charming transparent glass-bottom boat trips in Sharm El Sheikh.

About 10 km north of Naama Bay is Sharks Bay, a smaller resort area, also quieter and less expensive. The construction of a five-star hotel has recently attracted more tourists and further development is expected. Corals and tropical fish are wonderful, and despite the name, Shark, there are no sharks, only the borders of the shore form a figure of a shark and that's how the area got its name.

Sharm el Sheikh

North of Shark Bay, where the Red Sea meets the Gulf of Aqaba, is the Straits of Tiran. Diving trips to Tiran and Sanafìr Island depart from Naama, Sharm, and Shark Bay, the island is considered a natural protected area with numerous species of fish and corals. Nabq National Park also boasts the most northern mangrove forests on earth, where many birds live, such as grey and white herons, cranes, and hawks fishermen. The park is also home to an important ecological fish and shrimp farm and is located a few kilometers after the Sharm airport to the north.

Most hotels also offer a wide range of excursions in Sharm El Sheikh inland, to places such as the Monastery of Saint Catherine and Mount Sinai, or further inland, such as Wadi Feiran and Serabit el-Khadim.
