Sharm El Sheikh lies at the southern tip of the Sinai peninsula, where the desert merges with the beautifully clear waters of the Red Sea. Rapidly becoming the most popular resort on the Red Sea, Sharm offers a great range of activities, and is world-renowned for diving. The combination of water sports, quality accommodation and good facilities in a laid-back atmosphere combine to make Sharm one of the most popular destinations on the coast.

Sharm has excellent dive sites suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experts, including world-renowned sites. Ras Mohammed, to the south of the resort, is one of the best places in the world for wreck diving. At the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba, the Straits of Tiran are home to rays, dolphins and turtles. For the less active, there's a good selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars in Naama Bay, plus great local excursions also available.
Sharm is made up of a series of small resorts. Naama Bay is the main resort, with hotels, restaurants, shops and bars, plus dive centres overlooking the sandy, gently shelving beach. To the north, the areas of Ras Nasrani and Nabq Bay are more peaceful and slowly developing, while to the south, Ras Um Sid and Old Sharm are only a short ride from Naama Bay. As hotels can be up to 20 minutes drive from Naama Bay, choose your location carefully!
Spend a week or two relaxing in Sharm el Sheikh, taking a diving course, snorkelling or sampling local cuisine and dancing the night away. Alternatively, start with a few nights in Cairo before moving on to Sharm for the rest of your holiday. Combining Sharm with the Nile Valley is a little trickier, due to poor internal flight connections.
Flights to Sharm el Sheikh Airport operate direct from the UK throughout the year. Flights depart from Gatwick and Manchester. Direct scheduled flights also operate from Heathrow. At certain times of the year, additional flights from Gatwick, Manchester and other UK airports including Glasgow, Newcastle and Birmingham also operate - ask for more details. From Sharm Airport, hotels in Naama Bay can be reached in about 20 minutes, with those in Nabq being closer. Dahab is about an hour from Sharm.
