Walk like an Egyptian on the Sinai Peninsular
Sharm el Sheikh is located on the Sinai Peninsular and is surrounded by desert and red mountains, with man made sand and pebble beaches shelving gently into the calm shallow waters of the Red Sea
And it is these waters that make Sharm el Sheikh holidays such an excellent choice for scuba divers with many world class dive sites close by. The stunning underwater world reveals a multitude of colourful marine life; coral reefs, deep canyons and famous shipwrecks just waiting to be explored as you swim amongst over one thousand species of marine life including manta rays and sharks.
Two of the most popular dive sites are Ras Mohammed National Park and Tiran Island with expert tuition for beginners, PADI courses available and even night dives for the more experienced divers. If all that seems a little too adventurous, just grab yourself a snorkel, paddle into the shallow waters and stick your head underwater! You’ll be amazed by the colourful friendly fish that dart between your feet and chase each other round your toes.
Although it is a huge attraction, if the sea life is not for you, there are plenty of other things to do and see on your holidays in Sharm el Sheikh. A trek out into the desert on either a horse, camel or quad bike will take you into a wonderful rugged land where you can almost forget that the civilised world exists. Miles and miles of sand dunes and mountains stretch before you with a sunset watched from Mount Moses one of the most spectacular sights you are ever likely to see.
Bedouin Experiences are another ‘must do’ while on holidays to Sharm el Sheikh. Travel by camel into the desert to a genuine Bedouin Camp where you’ll enjoy the hospitality, cuisine and entertainment of the Bedouins around the campfire. Make sure you book a trip with an astronomy lesson on the way home! Lie on your back in the middle of the desert in the pitch black night and discover the true meaning of a ‘night of a thousand stars’. It’s a truly surreal experience and another one never to be forgotten.
