Why go to Sharm El Sheikh

With miles of parasol-dotted beaches, some of the most spectacular diving and snorkelling in the country, plus bars, restaurants and a huge dose of old world charm, there is plenty to keep the boredom at bay in Sharm.

Whether you want to flop on the beach, explore world-class diving sites or get immersed in culture and history, you won't be disappointed in Sharm el Sheikh...

Sharm el Sheikh holidays begin when you step into that familiar wall of heat as you get off your plane at Sharm el Sheikh International Airport (SSH). From there it's onwards to either Sharm itself or one of a handful of popular resorts served by the airport.

Nabq Bay, Sharks Bay, Naama Bay and Om El Seid Hill are just four of the fabulous seaside resorts dotted along this stretch of coast at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula. 

The chance to take part in watersports draws tourists here, as does the underwater world that floats around the spectacular coral reefs in this part of the Red Sea. A kaleidoscope of colour awaits divers, and dolphins are known to put in regular appearances. Even if you don't want to dive, the door to the underwater world is open via a snorkel and mask off one of the many lovely beaches. Clear and warm waters make this a fantastic place to dive or snorkel, regardless of your level of experience. 

The hotels in this part of Egypt have such incredible facilities that many holidaymakers choose to base themselves in the hotel grounds for the duration of the holiday. There really is no need to leave. 

Those looking to see more of the resort, the Sinai Peninsula and Egypt are spoiled for choice though. Sharm el Maya is Sharm's old town and there are plenty of cafés and stalls to thrill the senses of tourists. SOHO Square entertainment centre is in Sharm's downtown area and offers family entertainment in the form of a bowling alley, an ice-skating rink (yes, really) and family-friendly eateries. There are bars, casinos and nightclubs for the adults. St Catherine's Monastery in the Sinai Desert is a worthwhile day trip, while longer excursions to Egypt's famous treasures, such as the Great Pyramids of Giza, can be organised in the resorts.

Holidays in Sharm el Sheikh are a great option for families, groups and couples, with hotels and attractions catering for everyone. Start your Sharm story today and use TravelSupermarket's price checker to search for your holiday.
