Cheap flights to Sharm El Sheikh
Sharm el Sheikh is all about year round good weather, beachside lounging, some diving if you’re up for it and a good dose of lively nightlife. If you’re search is for sun, sea and sand then stop the hunt at the Egyptian resort town of Sharm el Sheikh, otherwise known as the land of perpetual sunshine. Let’s just say precipitation is a rare occurrence in this part of the world.
As well as an aversion to rain, the resort perched on the Red Sea coast of the Sinai Desert is also famous for its crystal clear waters, colourful reefs and world-class marine life. This is home to the Ras Mohammed Marine National Park and the diving here is classed as some of the best in the world, with reefs and fish that wouldn’t look amiss in the film ‘Finding Nemo’.
Enjoy a round of golf in the dramatic setting of mountain, desert and sea at the Jolie Ville's 18-hole PGA Championship course. Take part in a private or group lesson at the International Golf Academy or head to the 19th Hole Restaurant & Bar for some well-earned refreshments (Um Marikha Bay, +69 3600 635, jolieville-hotels.com).
