Activities

On holiday in Sharm el-Sheikh, diving and snorkelling are the main activities but there are a range of other activities available including horseback and camel riding, golf, desert safaris and health treatments, and a variety of watersports. The desert holds numerous attractions and trips are offered to Mt Sinai and St Catherine's Monastery, among others.

Restaurants

Between Sharm el-Sheikh's two tourist districts of Old Sharm and Naama Bay, there are a huge variety of dining options while on holiday, from hotel restaurants and international fast food chains like KFC, to local eateries and fresh fish. Anything from Mexican to Japanese is represented in Sharm el-Sheikh.

Sharm el-Sheikh casinos, discos, pubs and bars cater to those ready to party the night away while on holiday. Entertainment ranges from dance clubs to informal hangouts, with local favourites like the Pirates Bar, Zabadi and The Tavern Pub.

Shopping

Avid shoppers will find a good variety of goods in the old market and Sharm El-Sheikh mall, where shops sell both foreign and local products, including jewellery, leather goods, clothing, pottery and books.

Negatives

Shopkeepers and hawkers can become a nuisance but a polite though firm 'no, thank you' should ward them off.

Hi Jay

Thank you for your interest in a holiday to Sharm.

Each supplier has a different description of all inclusive.

Although this is a general term you may see any of the following
All inclusive light
All inclusive
All inclusive bronze
All inclusive silver
All inclusive gold (or premium)

Silver is a high standard of all inclusive and may include some extras ordinary all inclusive does not.

If you see the same hotel ie the Iberotel Il Mercato with both descriptions, chances are it is actually exactly the same, just different suppliers' wording.

There should be full details of what's included under the hotel description on our website, or more detailed information on the hotel's own website.

The Iberotel Il Mercato is a very popular hotel. It receives rave reviews and many repeat bookings.

I hope this helps with your decision and if you would like any help with your booking please do not hesitate to call 0161 372 0081 and ask for Kelly on extension 3267 and I will endeavour to assist you.

Kind regards
Kelly Stephenson
