About Sharm el Sheikh

Crystal blue waters, coral reef, and white sands draw tourists from around the world to Sharm El Sheikh. Add to that a hive of nightclubs, a liberal atmosphere, and a load of hotels offering cheap prices for the whole package. What you get is a highly popular tourist destination, which is why it's important to choose your hotel carefully if you're looking for something less touristy. The best places to stay in Sharm El Sheikh are the best Five Star resorts and a small diving club that offers fantastic access to waterports.

Na’ama Bay and Sharm al-Maya bays are host to incredible tropical fish and some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving. Unlike its underwater paradise, the coastline is decked with concrete resorts that have sprung up to cater to this European filled beach enclave.

If it's luxury you are after, then the Four Seasons Resort is what you should go for, but if you are travelling as a family and want something less expensive and diving oriented then Oonas Dive Club Hotel is a fantastic option.

It's best to avoid June to August when the temperatures are unbearable. If you're after sun and sea then this is a great choice, but bear in mind that this is the least cultured area of Egypt.

Sharm El Sheikh is what it is and it has critics on both sides, for those who see its beauty in its crystal shores then the best places to stay are Five Stars or a cheaper option that focuses on the diving opportunities.

For waterports:

  • Oonas Dive Club Hotel on the Red Sea coastline – not only has a fully equipped dive school and daily yachts to charter, but has rock bottom prices for simple rooms with balconies.
