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’.
Book a trip on the Seascope underwater observatory and enjoy a guided tour of the world-class Red Sea coral reefs. Seated in air-conditioned comfort, the panoramic windows allow plenty of opportunity to photograph the abundance of colourful marine life.
