Sharm El Sheikh holidays

Sharm El Sheikh holidays

The epitome of sun, sea and sand, Sharm El Sheikh has rocketed in popularity in recent years. With a flight time of only 5 ½ hours, this sun-soaked resort is a great alternative to the Caribbean for half the price.

If a swimming pool at your hotel is high on your list of must-haves you’re in luck; most hotels have a selection to choose from and you’ll even find some waterfalls and lazy rivers along the way. A beach is never far away and some of the hotels even have their own long stretch of private sandy beach too, you really will be spoilt for choice.

The hot desert climate is matched by 35km of glorious coastline and brilliantly clear, warm waters. Enjoy world-class diving and snorkelling, go on a desert safari, spend a high-octane day at waterpark and peruse traditional Egyptian markets. 

Sharm el-Sheikh is a true diving mecca and dive schools are plentiful if your skills are not yet up to scratch. Whether scuba or snorkel is your weapon of choice, there’s as much to see underwater as there is on dry land. Dive amongst tropical fish, coral reefs, submerged wrecks in shallow lagoons, craggy inlets or on boat trips off the coast.

 

Put your bartering skills to test at the Bedouin Bazaar. Wander through the bustling maze of colourful stalls and pick up anything from luxurious leather goods and jewellery to glass and pottery.

 

There’s plenty happening when the sun goes down and Na’ama Bay is the place to go. You’ll find the boardwalk awash with restaurants, bars and clubs that keep going as long as you do.

 

Burn dust- or sand!- on a desert safari. Hop on a quad, suit up with a desert shemagh and cruise the dunes of the Sinai desert.

 

Sharm el-Sheikh has two waterparks to its name: Cleo Park and Aqua Park. Lazy rivers, tube slides, wave pools, hair-raising kamikaze slides and kids areas will keep you- and the young ones!- entertained for the whole day, and each provide brilliant facilities and refreshment options. 

Ask and you shall receive! As a tourist hot-spot, Sharm el-Sheikh is exceptionally well-endowed with culinary options.

 

Meze is an ideal way to sample a wide range of foods, without the hefty bill or over-stuffed stomach!

 

Fresh fish is in abundance as are beautifully tender steaks, succulent veal and chicken cooked eastern style. 

You need 6 months validity on a 10 year British passport to travel here. Everyone must aquire a visa on arrival which costs £15 sterling.
