Why you should visit Sharm El Sheikh
Pick a beach hotel
Sharm el Sheikh has more beaches — and beach hotels — than you can shake a stick at. Sharm el Maya in the south is a top choice for snorkelling, with coral reefs just a few metres offshore. Sporty Na’ama Bay is a livelier stretch, meanwhile, with a whole medley of watersports for both adults and children. And under the sea the action doesn't stop. Dive schools are on hand to deliver first-timers and pros out to the shipwrecks, reefs and caves that decorate the coast.
Uncover Ancient Egypt
Luxor — home to ancient Thebes and the Temple of Karnak — might be a three-hour drive from Sharm el Sheikh, but the sights are of the once-in-a-lifetime variety. It’s also close to the Valley of the Kings, where Tutankhamun’s tomb was discovered.
