The sports and leisure facilities here match the quality of the superb fine sandy beaches. The resort’s position at the southern tip of Sinai Peninsula makes it a dream location for snorkeling and scuba diving – with expert on – the- spot training for beginners. Glass- bottom boats let non- swimmers share in some of the fun. The junction of the shallow Gulf of Suez and awesomely deep Gulf of Aqaba brings to Sharm an unrivalled collection of easily accessible corals and exotic fish. Visit, too, the nearby marine nature reserve of Ras Mohammed, where even waders in shallows can spot some wonderful fish. Respect the iron law: “Look, but do not touch.”
The Sinai mountains provide a grand backdrop to the beaches and stellar attraction is a sunset safari into the foothills for a romantic supper served up by the local Bedouin, often with an after-dinner show under the stars.
