Sharm-El-Sheikh

Sharm El Sheikh has a significant location situated at the southernmost section of ‎Sinai, around 500 kilometers away from Cairo, the Egyptian capital. The simplicity of sun, sea and sand. The luxury of five-star hotels, water sports, shopping and entertainment. This is Sharm el-Sheikh, one of the most accessible and developed tourist resort communities on the Sinai peninsula. All around are Bedouins, colorful tents, mountains and sea. There are small, intimate hotels with modern designs, as well as larger hotel complexes belonging to International chains, plus about all the amenities one could expect of a tourist center, including casinos, discos and nightclubs, golf courses and health facilities. In fact, with diving and snorkeling, windsurfing and other water sports, horses and camel riding, desert safaris, and great nearby antiquities attractions, it is almost impossible for a visitor to ever suffer from boredom. Na’ama Beach is one of the center of the tourist activities. Located just north of Sharm, this area is developing into a resort town of its own. Most hotels at Na’ama Bay have their own, private beaches with comfortable amenities such as chairs, shades and even bars. Shark’s Bay is also nearby, and again is a growing resort community with more and more to offer, along with several diving centers.

 

Egypt is known for its extremely hot and sunny climate, and the weather in Sharm el Sheikh is by no means an exception to this. With hot summer sunshine blasting down from June through September, even the winters in Sharm el Sheikh are extremely warm, with plenty of sunny weather to go around. In general, Sharm el Sheikh only has two noticeable seasons, a long winter period between November and April, and a summer for the rest of the year, from May to October. Many people choose to visit the Sharm el Sheikh area outside of the summer season, with temperatures averaging around 25°C / 77°F between February and April, rising to more than 30°C / 86°F in May. Early autumn is also a popular time to stay, between September and November, when the climate is especially pleasant, the waters are extremely warm, and temperatures stay around the mid-20s once again. 

Sharm el-Sheikh is an incredibly beautiful area with a hot, dry climate. Its location on the Red Sea means that the weather is enjoyable at most any time of the year, and ‘summer fun’ is to be had regardless of the season.

Without a doubt, Naama Bay is the top spot in Sharm for shopping. The lively tourist area is packed with fashionable clothes shops, jewellery stores and other shops offering pretty much anything. As the Naama Bay area is a thriving night life spot, many shops here stay open until midnight or even later.
In Nabq you can find Al Khan and La Strada, two malls with shopping, food and entertainment and in Al Hadaba the main shopping spot is Il Mercato. Do not be afraid to haggle – it is well expected, and prices can be brought down significantly if you demonstrate enough persistence.

The colourful Bedouin handicraft stands are always popular with tourists. The main shopping draws are gold and silver jewellery and semi-precious stones from Na’ama Bay or the Old Market. Spices, glass perfume bottles, slippers, leather bags, Bedouin embroidery. 

If you don’t like haggling and hassel when shopping. We recommend visiting Il mercato mall in Hadaba or SOHO Square. Here, most merchandise have fixed prices and price tags and they have modern clothes, sporting gear, baby shops, pharmacy etc.

The perfumes of this city have amazing smells and are strictly made from oil, so their smell lasts longer than the normal perfumes with an alcohol base. Just be careful with the delicate glass bottles on the way home.

Sharm has many top-notch bars that serve anything from exotic cocktails to imported European beer.

Sharm is famous for its lively and diverse nightlife. Enjoy a drink in the stylish Little Buddha bar, or quench your thirst with a pre-party cocktail at the Bus Stop. Then move on to one of Sharm’s bigger venues such as the famous Pacha Nightclub. Whether you want to chill-out or rave until dawn, Sharm has it all.

The Hard Rock Café is located on Naama Bay in Sharm El Sheikh, across from the Tropitel Naama Bay Hotel, and is pretty much right in the middle of all the action.

Welcome to Sultana steak house and BBQ, with its warm cozy atmosphere, friendly staff and stylish antique looking décor for exquisite fine dining. Delicious dishes include American beef, fresh seafood, chicken and various tasty barbeque dishes all prepared freshly on their clean outdoor barbeque. They also have a bar and an open salad buffet where you can help yourself to their fresh salad.

Not a lot of people know that Egypt is not only famous for its ancient monuments, culture and revolution, but it is also famous for its great food. Egyptian food is a mixture of all the different civilizations that came to Egypt in the history of its existence. Nowhere in the world will you be able to taste so many cultures in one plate. Below is a list of the most delicious and popular dishes served up in Egypt today.

Kushari- Considered to be the Egyptian national dish, it consists of pasta and tomato sauce, among other items, including rice, lentils, caramelized onions, garlic and chickpeas. Ful Medames – One of the common staple foods in Egypt, it consists of lava beans served with oil, garlic and lemon juice.

Konafah – Konafah is an Egyptian sweet made of a very thin noodle-like pastry. Konafah is made by drizzling long rows of the thin noodles in their liquid state on a hot plate until they become dry and more rigid. Gibna Domiati – Gibna Domiati is a white soft cheese made in the city of Damietta, in the north of Egypt. It is typically made from buffalo milk but sometimes cow milk is added to the mixture as well. It is the most common cheese found in Egypt.

As a seaside resort, Sharm has become famous for its excellent seafood, such as fresh shrimp and deep-fried calamari. Sharm’s international clientele and its many top-notch resorts mean you can find excellent restaurants that serve nearly anything from French, Thai, American and Japanese cuisine to traditional Egyptian food.

Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt is a tropical paradise located along the shores of the Red Sea. There is an endless array of things to do here, but here is a list of the Top 4 Must Do’s.

1. Diving – Most visitors come to Sharm el Sheikh to take a diving excursion into the Red Sea. The Red Sea has a strong reputation in the diving community as being one of the best spots in the world to dive. With its underwater canyons, wrecks, and over 1000 different species of colorful fish, the diving is hard to beat here.

2. Ras Mohammed National Park – Taking a 1/2 day or even whole day trip to Ras Mohammed National Park will be time well spent. Here you will find spectacular coral reef and nature viewing experiences. During calm conditions, the Eel Garden is a fun spot to watch all the eels in their natural habitat.

3. Desert Safari –  No trip to Sharm el Sheikh is complete without a safari into the desert. A stark contrast from the coastline, in the deserts here you are able to see colored canyons, St. Katherine’s Monastery, and the Feiran Oasis. If you are looking for a real desert treat, try climbing Mount Moses for sunrise, you won’t be disappointed. To make the desert trek, the easiest way is by horse, camel, or quad bike.

4. Mount Sinai – a religious site, this 7,497 foot high mountain is a beloved landmark of the Egyptians. Follow in the very footsteps of Moses who climbed Mount Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments! The trek to the top is not very steep or difficult, but be prepared for the 500 stairs to the summit..it is definitely worth it at the top.
