"Isolated Egyptian Beach Paradise"

Sharm El Sheikh Tourism

Sharm El Sheikh is an Egyptian resort town nestled in the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula and the Red Sea. Known for its coral reefs, sheltered sandy beaches and turquoise waters, Sharm El Sheikh is one of the best diving spots in the world. It is also regarded as the city of peace, owing to several International Peace Conferences hosted in town.

Sharm El Sheikh is full of places like Ras Mohammed and Tiran Island, renowned for great scuba diving experiences. The serenity of vacationing in this town is beyond the city life. There are many historical sites like St. Catherine's Monastery, Sharm Old Market and Al-Sahaba Mosque. Desert Safari and Camel Trekking in the magical Sinai desert is also popular here.

Sharm El Sheikh is home to a number of coastal towns, including Dahab, and the mountainous regions of St. Catherine and Mount Sinai. This place is ideal for people who like minimalistic vacations in the lap of nature, as laws have restricted locals from building tall buildings that obscure the scenery. To experience the local culture, wander around the Old Town. Once a fishing village, this beach destination is now known for its mesmerizing landscapes of the beaches and the Sinai Peninsula, which is a desert mountain range nearby. A perfect blend of beaches and the golden desert, Sharm is a place one of a kind!
