Sharm El Sheikh

The Red Sea coastal cities carry a unique vibe that you cannot encounter in any other place. If you ever consider traveling to an exotic location, Sharm El Sheikh is a wonderful destination that can meet all your expectations. Commonly known as Sharm, this is considered one of the most attractive coastal cities in Egypt. Located on the southern part of the Sinai Peninsula, on the coast of the Red Sea, it provides the outer-worldly escape you are looking for.

What was once a quiet fishing village is now incredibly popular for its sprawling beaches and remarkable marine life. Today, most people recognize Sharm El-Sheikh as an exclusive holiday resort location, and this is what makes it such a valuable retreat. For all those who want to enjoy an excellent destination that offers a variety of colors, a unique culture, and a warm climate, this is the location for you. Sharm El Sheikh is the international center for many diplomatic meetings and conferences, and it is also called The City Of Peace. 

Here, you will be able to explore unique national parks, and desert landscapes, along with the pristine sand beaches and characteristic sea life. For all those looking for an exceptional retreat in an unconventional location, Sharm El Sheikh is the ideal place for you.


A fun fact about the climate in this city– it rarely ever gets cold! The beautiful thing about this subtropical country is that the climate creates perfect conditions for you to visit any time of the year. Sharm El Sheikh and a few other Egyptian cities have the warmest winter night temperatures. The temperatures are consistently warm all through the year. The coldest month is usually January, with the highest daily temperature of 18°C (64°F), and the warmest month tends to be August, with an average daily temperature of 33°C (91°F). We recommend autumn and spring as the best times to visit this wonderful city. It is when the average temperature is just below 30 degrees, making it a little less humid and not extremely hot. For those who are keen on exploring the sea, the Red Sea has a perfect temperature in those seasons – it will not disappoint!

Brief History

Geographically and historically speaking, Egypt has always been in a good position – the establishment of a dynastic era in ancient Egyptian history made the north and the south merge into one. Sharm El Sheikh is situated in the northeast and was initially recognized as a mining area. A number of the ancient quarries are still standing near the city. Due to its position in the southernmost tip of the Sinai peninsula, Sharm El Sheikh served as a bridge between Africa and Asia. In fact, because of its location on the exact spot where the Red Sea is split into the Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Aqaba, this city got its name – ‘Sharm’, meaning ‘The Split’ in Arabic.

With the conquering of Egypt in 32 BC, the Romans were the next ones to take control of the country. Sharm El Sheikh was a small fishing village back then but also served as a trading post. It was inhabited by the Nabateans Arab – famous traders who supplied Roman Egypt with incense and leather from the Arabian peninsula. Egypt, Sharm El Sheikh included, was a Roman province until the Muslim conquest in 632 AD.

Throughout history, the city evolved into an important port, but its favourable location also played its part in the Suez Crisis of 1956, when Sharm El Sheikh was conquered by Israel. However, a year later, it was returned to Egypt. But that didn’t last very long as the 1967 Six-Day War happened, and it was once again under Israel’s command.

Finally, Egypt regained control of the Sinai peninsula (including Sharm El Sheikh) in 1973. Six years later, a treaty was signed between the involved parties in the last conflict (Egypt and Israel), acknowledging the area as a significant place for tourism, diving, fishing, camping, and more.

Nowadays, it is all about progress! Within the past half a century, this city has been developing one step at a time, to become a popular destination for all those who wish to gain a unique experience. If you are looking for an adventurous coastal spot in Egypt where the sea is calm, and the beaches are endless, this is the place to be!

Places to visit

Ras Mohammed National Park

One of the first things that you need to include on your visiting list should be Ras Mohammed National Park. This is one of the world’s most famous marine parks. For those with a knack for snorkeling, this place offers unique coral reefs and crystal-clear waters, allowing you to feast your eyes on the wonders! Ras Mohammed National Park is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places to visit in the country.

Mount Sinai and Monastery of St. Catherine

Visiting a new country means opening up to learning a little bit about their culture, as well; and Mount Sinai is the ideal place to open up this possibility. The st. Catherine Monastery is an architectural and spiritual wonder. The Byzantine Emperor Justinianus built it in the 6th century. Now, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Colorful canyon

No destination can call itself the ultimate Egyptian retreat if it doesn’t open up to the possibility of safari adventures. In this case, the entire experience is further elevated as you are doing the safari with an off-road vehicle. This fantastic experience comes in the form of a guided tour where you get to take a look at the colorful canyon. It is composed of rocks in many colors – formed by oxidation, resulting in a one-of-a-kind landscape. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and take a hike through this natural wonder.

Soho Square Dancing Fountain

If you are easily stunned by large water installations, then this is a man-made wonder that you will love! Take a look at this wonderful water display – it is certainly one of the best in Egypt. This dancing fountain is placed in the center of Soho Square, attracting tourists to gaze at its distinguished appearance.

Old Market Sharm El Sheikh

For those coming to this city for the first time, we highly recommend that you pay a visit to the old market. The reason it was given its name is that it is a traditional market that dates back centuries ago. It truly allows you to take in the culture through the wonderful displays of local foods, crafts, and souvenirs.


Dive through the Thistlegorm Wreck

A little bit off the western coast of the Sinai Peninsula, you can find this incredible diving spot that is a tourist attraction, especially for experienced divers. This ship was packed with cargo to give the British additional supply during World War II before it was sunk by German bombers.

USD 150

Naama Bay

For a more laid-back experience, all you need to do is grab your bathing suit, a towel, and your favorite book, and head over to Naama Bay. There are many cafes, restaurants, and stores in case you get bored (which we highly doubt).


Jolanda Reef Site

This is yet another exquisite diving site; only this one is located in Ras Mohammed National Park. Going on a dive trip here includes visiting the Shark Reef, too, and the burst of colors you get to experience is amazing!

USD 130

Ras Um Sid Beach

It is an incredible snorkeling site – one of the best in Sharm El Sheikh. If you are more of a passive tourist and want to take in the view from afar, the beach welcomes you with arms wide open! You can choose to sunbathe under the warm sun or sit in a café and enjoy the view!

USD 50

Visit Nabq Protectorate

If you want to discover a magnificent nature reserve, this is the place to visit. About 20 km north of Sharm El Sheikh, you can find incredible sand dunes and magnificent desert landscapes. It is even the home to the world’s most northern mangrove forest.

USD 70

Quad runner bike adventure

The ultimate adventurous activity to do here is to witness the sunrise or sunset while you “fly” through the sand dunes. Getting on a quad bike will allow you to discover new magnificent areas amidst the seemingly-lonely desert.

USD 100

Panoramic submarine

If you want to go underwater but hate to get wet, we have a solution for you! Take on an adventure with a submarine and explore all the underwater attractions.

USD 60

Travel Tips

Take an excursion or a long walk in the morning. The temperature can get pretty high during the day, so we recommend you spend the afternoons cooling off by the sea.

The nights, however, usually get more than just chilly, especially if you are traveling in winter. If you have chosen this as your ultimate winter destination, then we recommend you pack some warm clothes.

You can find shuttle buses anywhere. They are the most common transportation form, and most of them are within less than 5 minutes apart. If you are staying at a large hotel, you might end up getting in a taxi, as well. Make sure to specify your preferred means of transport before having someone book it for you.

Because of the many corals, tourists are advised to buy special shoes to swim freely in the sea.
