Luxury holidays in Sharm El Sheikh are the very best way to enjoy Egypt’s watersports capital.
When you choose one of our luxury holidays in Sharm El Sheikh, you’ll be staying in one of the resort’s top hotels. It’s the very best way to enjoy a place that’s famous for its miles of golden beaches and clear, snorkel-friendly waters. Here are our top 5 ideas for what to see and do when you’re here...
Long, sandy beaches
Sharm El Sheikh is home to some sensational beaches. Sharm El Maya in the south offers a sandy stretch where you can snorkel in the crystal-clear waters or go deeper with a spot of scuba diving. Further north, in Na’ama Bay, things are much livelier. Here, beach bars pump out a soundtrack to your sunbathing.
Lots of diving
The coastline around here gives you the chance to get up close to local marine life like hammerheads and wrasses. In fact, some of the world’s most famous diving sites are just an hour’s boat ride away. Head to the Straits of Tiran and Ras Mohamed National Park for the best spots.
Nights out on Na’ama Bay’s boardwalk
After dark, the clubs and bars along the prom burst into life. Famous DJs like David Guetta and Roger Sanchez have been known to put in guest appearances in the big-name venues, such as Pacha. Lots of the clubs offer luxurious extras like swimming pools and hot tubs, too.
Egyptian food in the old market
The Old Market in Sharm El Sheikh serves up traditional Egyptian food. You’ll find street stalls selling the likes of kebabs and meatballs. If you’d rather sit down to eat, there are plenty of restaurants along the side streets here, too.
Daytrips from Sharm El Sheikh
The windsurfing hotspot of Dahab city is just an hour’s drive away. And for countryside wilderness, there’s St Katherine’s National Park. It’s 230-kilometres from the resort – but it’s well worth the trip. This is, after all, where Moses is said to have seen the burning bush. You’ll find a 6th-century monastery here complete with priceless artwork and illuminated manuscripts.
