Sitting on the Southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula on the infamous Red Sea, nestled in with the oceanic landscape of Ras Mohammed National Park, Sharm el-Sheikh is just a stone's throw from the breathtaking landmarks of Mount Sinai, Giza and the Nile. A holiday haven of boundless bottle-blonde beaches, star-studded night skies and biblical sunrises, the crown jewel of this resort paradise is the endless supply of underwater action. A subaquatic paradise of crystal-clear waters, garish coral reefs, chilling shipwrecks and hundreds of species of exotic fish pompously show off their costumes and fulfil every scuba diver's wet dreams.
Sharm el-Sheikh first appeared on a Spanish map in 1762, but it was no more than a quiet fishing town until the 1970s!
When you have had enough of soaking in the sun and surfing of Na'ama Bay, head inland for camel rides and mountain biking, inexpensive shopping, bubbling shisha and glorious traditional Egyptian ‘ful medames’ with fresh ‘baladi’ bread.
