Sharm El Sheikh Travel Guide

Nestled on the Southern tip between the Red Sea and Mount Sinai, Sharm el-Sheikh, is one the most beautiful and renowned deep-sea diving paradises in the world. Crystal clear water, pristine white sandy beaches and endless desert landscape, and exotic underwater flora and rare tropical fish, make Sharm el-Sheikh one of the most favourite tourist destination in Egypt.

Also referred to as “The City of Peace”, Sharm el-Sheikh is divided into three main regions namely Naama Bay, Ras Um Sid Cliff and Sharm El Maya. Na’ama Bay is a long sandy bay that boasts a beautiful paved walkway, lined with bougainvillea and oleander. Tourists swarm the many shops, restaurants, bars and 'Sheesha' cafes here especially in the evening.

86% of all the housing here is in the form of hotels, and only 3% houses the original Bedouin population of the area.

The city of Sharm El Sheikh is known as "The City of Peace" due to the large number of peace conferences which have been held there over the years.

Sharm El Sheikh is Egypt’s biggest resort city.
