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’.
Have a drink at the Ice Bar, enjoy an al fresco dinner in one of the many restaurants, soak in Egyptian history at Culturama, skate at the ice rink, or even go clubbing at Pangaea! All this and more is available at Soho Square, Sharm's leading entertainment centre.
Aladdin's Cave is a fixed-price gift shop specialising in traditional Egyptian handmade jewellery, bags, glassware and ornaments. You'll find it on the main drag.
For a more authentic shopping trip head to Sharm's 'Old Market' and spend an evening exploring the maze of bazaars, coffee shops and restaurants.
Sail to the protected waters of Tiran Island and enjoy a day of snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea. Most organised tours include hotel transfer, lunch, drinks and equipment. en.egypt.travel
