Sharm el-Sheikh: The things we love
Beaches: Naama Bay is probably the most popular of all the beaches but many resorts also have their own private beaches with guest-only access.
History: Visit the historic enclaves of the Sinai, the 6th Century Monastery of St. Catherine and climb Mount Sinai, where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments from God.
Water-sports: Sharm is one of the most prominent diving spots
in the world with crystal clear water and many amazing coral reefs to explore.
Adventure: Safaris into the desert by quad bike or camel are recommended. We also recommend hiring a private guide for overnight stays at the oasis to see the desert sky by night.
Climate: Sharm has an arid climate—hot and dry—all year round, but it gets a little humid in the summer. Most cafes have large fans to keep their customers nice and cool.
Nightlife: At night, Naama Bay has the atmosphere of a mini Las Vegas. It becomes the centre of nightlife in Sharm with many funky nightclubs, bars, restaurants and casinos to choose from.
Sharm is a very modern and developed tourist destination with a wide variety of excellent restaurants including many well-known chains like The Hard Rock Café.
