Sharm el-Sheikh is one of the most accessible and developed tourist resort communities on the Sinai peninsula. All around are Bedouins, colourful tents, mountains and sea plus all the amenities one could expect of a tourist centre, including casinos, discos and nightclubs, an 18- hole golf course and health facilities.
In fact, with diving and snorkelling, windsurfing and other water sports, camel riding, desert safaris, and great nearby accessible attractions, it is impossible for a visitor to ever suffer from boredom here!
The fabled reefs of the Ras Mohammad marine park and the offshore reefs of the Straits of Tiran are within easy reach of Sharm El Sheikh for some truly memorable dive sites.
Sample the desert on your visit to Sharm El Sheikh with a camel ride followed by a Bedouin dinner under the stars.
Authentic Egyptian culture can be found in the resort's arab bazaars and local shops while Sharm's nightlife rivals any modern resort with plenty of restaurants and live shows on offer.
For those who live to shop, the Sharm El Sheikh mall provides shops with both foreign and local products, including jewellery, leather goods, clothing, pottery and books.
In the greater resort area of Sharm el Sheikh, the bays include, from south to north, Sharm el Maya, Naama Bay, Garden Bay, Shark's Bay and Nabq Bay.
For local excursions, a must see is St. Catherine's Monastery at the foot of Mount Sinai, while further afield you can visit the Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza and the tombs and temples at Luxor.
