Sharm-El-Sheikh is located at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula and is the ideal place if you are looking to get away from it all and want to enjoy the beaches, scuba diving and watersports for which this city is famous.
If you love sun, sea and sand then Sharm-El-Sheikh is the destination for you all year round...
Sharm-El-Sheikh has seen a huge rise in the number of tourists who come for the watersports and beaches and this in turn has led to an influx of large hotel chains and the opening of the area's first aqua park hotel resort. The resort has a marina for private yachts but also operates ferry services to Hurghada and Aqaba as well as being a port for cruise ships.
The main attraction for visitors to this resort is the snorkelling and scuba diving and added to this is the fact that the resort boasts some stunning beaches and has a great all year round air and water temperature. Ras Mohammed, a national park at the southern end of the Sinai Peninsula and Nabq both have well known dive sites with many amazing discoveries to be made underneath the sea.
In addition, travelling inland will enable you to experience some of the history and culture that Egypt has to offer. If you want to experience more of this resort than just the diving and the beaches then other places to visit include Mount Sinai as well as the Monastery of St Catherine or even a trip into the Sahara. Alternatively you can take a coach from the bus station and pay a visit to Cairo.
