Sharm el Sheikh holidays will take you to the southern-most point of Egypt, with its desert landscapes, white sandy beaches and glittering blue seas. It is the ideal place to relax but also offers plenty of activities for fun-lovers and thrill-seekers. A resort destination in a country rich in culture, Sharm el Sheikh makes a perfect family holiday choice for those seeking something a little different.
Spring-time and early autumn are ideal times to visit Sharm el Sheikh, as the summer months can be extremely hot and not as comfortable! You should find everything you need within walking distance at the resort, otherwise taxis make an ideal way to travel around. Just make sure you select a recognised provider and agree on a price before setting off. The time zone in Sharm el Sheikh is GMT+2.
There are three main areas of Sharm el Sheikh: Na'ama Bay, Ras Um Sid Cliff and Sharm el Maya. All of them are ideal for holidaymakers, honeymooners and those travelling with children. Sharm el Sheikh is renowned as being one of the world's best locations for scuba diving, due to the tropical fish and impressive corals which are to be found there. There are many diving schools which can teach you to dive safely and allow you to get closer to the underwater world.
There are many choices for day trips on your Sharm el Sheikh holidays including Mount Sinai, where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments, and Egypt's fascinating capital city Cairo, where you can discover the world famous pyramids at Giza and the Great Sphinx. For those with a penchant for sports, there are quad biking excursions in the heart of the desert and for the less daring, unforgettable camel rides through the dunes.
