Introducing Sharm el-Sheikh


Sharm el-Sheikh was just a small fishing village up until the 1980s, but since then huge amounts have been invested to make it a premier holiday destination the whole year round. Sharm el-Sheikh enjoys the beautiful waters of the Red Sea where scuba diving and snorkeling are favorite activities while dawn and dusk desert safaris afford even more unique experiences. The balmy evenings make exploring the city's streets a real treat, and there is a great range of restaurants offering up fantastic local and international cuisine.

Sharm el-Sheikh is known for:


Wellness Entertainment and Shopping Swimming Diving Extreme Sports Seaside
