Blessed with golden sandy beaches and warm, clear water, Sharm el Sheikh is one of the top locations in the world for snorkelling and scuba diving. The perfect visibility combined with the vast array of colourful marine life that inhabits these waters makes the experience second to none and one you are sure to remember for the rest of your life. Those who would rather experience the wonders of Sharm el Sheikh without getting wet should consider hopping on a quad bike and exploring the surrounding Sinai desert. If you're lucky you might even get to witness a sunrise or sunset while you're at it.
For the ultimate day of fun in the sun, travellers should definitely head to the Aqua Blue Water Park. Complete with dozens of slides, rapids and pools this action packed park is perfect for the whole family. Alternatively, for those who prefer something a little quieter, Na'ama Bay is an idyllic stretch of beach, perfect for kicking back and watching all of your problems evaporate in the fierce Egyptian heat. There is also the Old Market, which is worth exploring by those in search of knick knacks to take home with them.
While Sharm el Sheikh might not seem like a hotbed of culture, travellers will be surprised by what is on offer here. Spend the night gazing at the stars at a Bedouin dinner or take a trip to the beautiful Al-Mustafa Mosque for a glimpse at traditional local culture. The Heavenly Cathedral also makes for some pretty impressive viewing and was voted one of the most beautiful churches in the world. Please note that international flights are not currently servicing the Sharm el Sheikh area but we hope the tourism industry will be back to normal by the end of the year.
