Sharm El Sheikh
Many come to enjoy the warm waters, including the super-salty Red Sea, or the nearby coral reefs – perfect for diving and snorkelling. Others come for the sands, including trekking on camels or quad bikes through the Sinai desert, or exploring the Bedouin village for mementos and gifts. Check out Old Town for traditional markets, eastern spires and jaw-dropping architecture. Cool off in the Ice Bar before experiencing some unique entertainment in Soho Square, such as the singing fountains.
With reasonably priced flights direct from many local airports, there’s no wonder Sharm El Sheikh is an increasingly popular holiday destination for UK tourists.
With the ongoing threat of terrorism in and around Egypt, we always recommend checking the latest travel and safety updates via the Foreign Office before booking any holiday. You can do so here: www.fco.gov.uk
