Stunning Sharm El Sheikh

This famed port and resort town of Egypt is synonymous with diving and package holiday deals, as well as a vibrant atmosphere, with memorable experiences enjoyed whether spent exploring the depths of the Red Sea, venturing into the immense surrounding desert or dining on delicious and traditional Egyptian fare. Sharm El Sheikh holidays are always action-packed, offering countless things to do in this wonderful resort of Egypt, whether you find yourself inclined to a dose of action, adventure and discovery, or prefer to have yourself pampered in a relaxing and serene environment – both sides of the coin can be flipped in this wonderful resort.

This modernised and ever-developing resort is the perfect place for a relaxing yet exciting holiday, as well as one that radiates comfort and luxury. There are several accommodation options awaiting travellers during their holidays to Sharm El Sheikh, with some wonderful stylish resorts allowing you to escape the sunshine and action for an afternoon and immerse yourself in relative calm.

Action, Adventure and Exploration

One of the biggest draws for holidaymakers to Sharm El Sheikh is the resort’s magical underwater adventure scene. The diving around Sharm is considered among the best in the world, with numerous diving schools giving visitors the chance to learn to dive, or for those already with experience, to develop their experiences further. Among the dives on offer, you can expect to encounter sharks, rays and turtles, as well as the opportunity to explore a number of shipwrecks.

Those not so keen on the idea of diving can opt for snorkelling instead, with nearby resorts such as El Gouna and the much larger Hurghada also offering great opportunities for exploration on and beneath the waves. Numerous other water sports can also be enjoyed during Sharm El Sheikh holidays, including parasailing, jet-skiing, windsurfing and water-skiing, providing a well-rounded package of fun and entertainment.

The outdoor pursuits in Sharm don’t end once you’ve left the water, with many other options arising for those that need a break from the sun, sand and sea. The surrounding desert is perfect for exploring by safari, with mountains and canyons waiting to be discovered, whether by camel trek or quad bike - the Ras Mohammed National Park is arguably the place to encompass all of this adventure – revealing awe-inspiring landscapes to holidaymakers.

Rest and Relaxation

In addition to the thrill-seeking and pulse-racing aspects of Holidays in Sharm El Sheikh, visitors will also find the opportunity for relaxation and indulgence rather than action and adventure. There is fantastic infrastructure that will allow tourists the chance to recharge their batteries in a comfortable and luxurious setting, with all the necessary ingredients for a fantastic holiday served right to their doorstep, particularly across a range of wonderful all-inclusive resorts.

Whether you’re after spa treatments, relaxing beside a glistening pool or tucking into a range of authentic Egyptian meals, you’ll find an endless stream of options inclined to allowing you to recharge your dwindling batteries or sooth your aching limbs after a few days of endless action. For those attempting to seek a more traditional and local-orientated flavour during their holidays to Sharm El Sheikh, venture to the resort’s Old Town, specifically the old market, portraying a distinctively different way of life to tourists previously embedded within the ‘resort bubble’. If this gets your explorative juices going, take some trips further afield to engage with some more of Egypt’s great attractions, including the beautiful and peaceful Makadi Bay, or for something a little more cultural and historical, the immense ancient structure-filled city of Luxor.
