Sharm El Sheikh Holidays

Your Sharm El Sheikh holiday

Make the most of the winter holidays by taking a relaxing holiday in Sharm el-Sheikh. This beautiful coastal resort town is known as the city of peace, but it also hosts numerous activities, historical locations, and unforgettable landscapes. The well-developed beach town is popular year-round for Egyptians and foreigners alike due to its constantly warm climate. Take a walk down the coast, or snorkel above the underwater wonderland, and you’ll soon realise why a flight to Sharm el-Sheikh should be on everyone’s agenda.

Located on the southern extreme of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, Sharm el-Sheikh has a population of 35,000, and has become one of the country’s most important coastal centres. The town originated as a strategic port and naval area for the Egyptian Army, while also acting as a regional hub for fishing. In the 1950s, Israel took over the city in the Suez Crisis, but it regained independence one year later. It wasn’t long before trouble returned to the area, however, and the United Nations placed troops in Sharm el-Sheikh during the Six Day War in 1967. The city was restrained under Israeli military law when the Sinai Peninsula was granted freedom not long after the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty in 1979.

As planning committees decided to create subdivisions of the Gulf of Aqaba, which divided the different zones, city centres such as Taba, Nuweiba, Dahab and Sharm El-Sheikh were created. In the 1980s, foreign investors began to build beachside resorts with cooperation from the Egyptian government. It was in this moment that much of the city’s commercial and population growth began to occur. In 2005 the resort town suffered terrorist attacks by an extremist Islamist organisation, when almost 90 people were killed in the deadliest attack in the country’s history. It bounced back quickly from the tragedy, and today the major industry is tourism, with visitors coming from all over Egypt and the world.

Best time to take a holiday to Sharm El Sheikh

  • The warm temperatures that hit Sharm El Sheikh during summer make June, July, and August the best time to visit. The average temperatures usually hit the low 20s but can easily climb above 30°C in August. Winter temperatures often drop a little lower during the day and hit temperatures well below 20°C at night, so bring along some warmer clothes for the nights out in Sharm El Sheikh.

Sharm El Sheikh holiday travel tips

  • Airport Services

    Most visitors arrive at Sharm el-Sheikh by plane. The international airport is 10 kilometres outside of Na’ama Bay and has good shuttle transports that whisk new arrivals to the beach in no time. The only problem is that schedules can be unreliable. Taxis are another option, but can be overpriced, and as many drivers don’t use meters they are renowned for charging over the odds.

    Bus and Train Travel

    Sharm el-Sheikh has cheap public bus transport options for those looking to save money for activities. It is important, however, to flag down the driver or else he will not pick you up, even at a designated stop. Change is necessary when using the bus and it is advisable to consult the driver about the amount for the destination before getting on. Train connections within the city aren’t very developed and are rarely necessary.

    Taxis

    Even if you don’t mind paying a bit extra for taxis, it is still a good idea to order one from a reputable company or pick one up in a designated area—it’s safer this way than flagging one down in the street. Try to settle on a price before riding so as to avoid any confusion later on in the journey.

    Car Rental

    A car hire in Sharm el-Sheikh could be the best option if you plan on moving around a lot. Renting a car is a low-cost way to travel, and an efficient way to get to and from different beaches.

Insider tips for Sharm El Sheikh travel

  • Aqua Blue Water Park

    As this is one of the only water parks in Sharm El Sheikh, locals come here in droves on hot days for the water rides and attractions.

    Melodies

    This old-fashioned building serves some of the best pizza in the city, making it popular with locals who want to avoid the touristy pizza places.

    Terrazzina Beach

    Terrazzina Beach delights visitors with live music and delicious food, and locals enjoy it because of the low tourist traffic.

    La Locanda Steakhouse & Oriental Food

    Though this restaurant has an odd name, it has a great atmosphere, friendly waiters, and a variety of different menu offerings.

    Wreck Caffe

    Seafood dishes and international cuisine make this a hidden gem in the city-and one that tourists don't know about.

Sharm El Sheikh restaurants

  • Sharm el-Sheikh is a delight for those with exotic culinary tastes. One of the more popular spots is the Little Buddha (Na’ama Bay Hotel), located in Na’ama Bay. This restaurant mixes all types of Asian cuisine—drawing on Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Indonesian influences. The restaurant decor is exceptional and the service is speedy and friendly. It’s also a good place for a night out with friends because after 11 pm the upstairs section of the restaurant turns into one of the area’s prime dance clubs.

    Guests who need a short break for a drink and some nibbles should head over to the Havana Bar (Hilton Hotel, Na’ama Bay). On the Na’ama Bay seafront near the promenade, the bar has soothing oriental plants and waterfalls, all connected by a series of quaint bridges. All visitors need to do is buy a drink, relax at one of the outdoor tables, and spend hours people-watching.

    A good restaurant for great authentic Egyptian and Middle Eastern cuisine is the El Masrien (Old Market). A charming oriental wonderland with soft background music and lavish decor, this restaurant has an à la carte menu filled with hot and cold Lebanese dishes such as fowl, eggplant and quail.

    If you fancy something a little more traditional, a local legend in Italian cuisine is the El Fanar (Ras Umm Sid). This little corner of Italy in the middle of the Sinai desert has a menu that includes fish, meats, sweets, pizzas, and all the imported wines and liquors that anyone could ever want.

Promotion Sharm El Sheikh

  • A great place to stay for a family vacation is the Hilton Sharks Bay Resort. An all-inclusive resort just outside of the town, the hotel has a private beach, and seven swimming pools. Tennis courts are available for the more active holiday-goers, while golfers will love the challenging course. The hotel is only 10 minutes from the airport by car and has a health club and no fewer than 11 distinct restaurants.

    Another elegant and modern haven is the Four Seasons Hotel. This hotel is on the southernmost point of the Sinai Peninsula, and faces out towards the Red Sea and Tiran Island. The main building has two floors, one with hotel information, concierge, health club, spa and several restaurants.

    A more affordable resort option is the Logaina Sharm Resort. The hotel is located at Shark’s Bay and is a 48-suite resort that offers distinct swimming pools, and gardens for the whole family. The hotel has a bar/lounge, game room for the kids, laundry service, restaurant and unlimited wireless signal throughout the building.

    The beautiful Savoy Hotel is another great spot to rest. The low-rise complex is just three kilometres from the town centre and a 15 minute-drive to Na’ama Bay. The rooms are lined with elegant marble and wood, and include all the amenities you would demand from such a high-calibre brand.

    If these options are not to your fancy, you can find lots more information about a hotel in Sharm el-Sheikh online.

Health & Safety

  • Accidents and Health Problems

    Tap water is not recommended for drinking and it is preferable for travellers to drink bottled water such as Baraka, Delta, or Siwa.

    Sharm el-Sheikh’s health infrastructure is good and the medical staff is usually highly trained.

    In the case of emergency visitors should call 123 for an ambulance, 122 for Police or 125 for the Fire Department.

    Security

    Egypt has a low crime rate, but it is recommended that travellers do not walk by themselves in areas they don’t know or far from the resort, especially at night or in poorly lit areas. It’s also not a good idea to flash jewellery around as it may draw attention for the wrong reasons. It is also prudent to keep a copy of all travel documents somewhere safe, just in case the originals are stolen or misplaced.

    Terrorism is a risk, so be especially vigilant in crowded areas frequented by tourists, as they maybe a target for attack. Small collective transport vehicles such as minibuses are a dangerous mode of transport, the Egyptian railway service is poor, and local or regional air transport should only be taken if it meets the European Commission standards.

    It is a good idea to adapt clothing to the culture: Egypt is a conservative country so overt displays of sexuality in public can be a dangerous thing. It is also not advised to visit the border with Israel, as the risk of an attack increases dramatically in that area.
