Sharm El Sheikh resort is now the most luxurious Egyptian destination on the Red Sea, where everything is about tourism. The natural climatic conditions here are favorable as the weather is fine all year round. In winter months the air temperatures are very comfortable, between 23 and 25 degrees Celsius, and the water is no colder than 20-22 C (80s F). In summer the air is blazing hot, and the temperatures reach 40 C (104 F) and higher but the constant sea breezes from the gulfs of Suez and Agaba compensate for the fierce sunlight.
The numerous shops here are stuffed with various diving equipment and facilities, sports wear and other necessary accessories for underwater activities during your Sharm El Sheikh holidays. In a dozen of diving centers experienced instructors will lead you into the world of local marine fauna which is quite astonishing with its coral reefs and schools of tropical fish dashing about the mysterious shipwrecks. Besides, receiving a diving certificate here, either CMAS or PADI, is cheaper than in some other countries. The best nearby diving attractions are Ras Mohommed Reef, National Park, one of the world's top three reefs due to the clear warm water and rich marine life, and Ras um Sid, the great area for diving and snorkeling.
Those who are not interested in diving can find many kinds of beach entertainment and other outdoors activities here, such as tennis and golf, horseback riding, windsurfing, sailing, parachute jumping, water skiing and everything else that five star resort can offer.
Naama Bay is the heart of Sharm El Sheikh. It is the territory of the most luxurious hotels surrounded by restaurants, bars and night clubs. So if you are not completely exhausted after a day full of activities, head for Naama Bay and rave all night long or have a relaxing dinner and stroll along the bay.
Excellent service and plenty of sport and entertainment programs is not the only highlight of the Sharm El Sheikh holidays. It is one of the most beautiful resorts in Egypt, famous for its sightseeing. Here you can enjoy the panoramic view across the Gulf of Aqaba to the Saudy Mountains or take a trip to St. Catherine's Monastery and climb Mount Sinai where Moses received The Ten Commandments. One of the most peculiar attractions of Sharm El Sheikh holidays is surely the vast sandy desert around the resort. Venture on a jeep safari and visit Bedouins there!
The daytrips you can take during your Sharm El Sheikh holidays include Ras Mohamed boat trip (about $100 US), Safari (about $120 US), Bedouin Dinner in the desert (about $95 US), Dahab or Nuweiba (about $110 US) and daytrip to Petra in Jordan with flights and visa (about $600 US).
Another advantage of the Sharm El Sheikh resort is its convenient location in relation to other popular Egyptian cities and destinations. Visiting Cairo or Hurghada from here is not a problem, and many tour agencies offer various programs including staying in Cairo for sightseeing and then traveling back to Sharm El Sheikh by air-conditioned vehicle.
