Sharm El Sheikh holidays 2021

Holidays in Sharm el Sheikh, or Sharm as it’s better known, offer the best the Red Sea. Offshore you’ll find world-class diving and pristine coral reefs, while hotels and restaurants look out over mile upon mile of beautiful beaches.

The closest Red Sea resort to Europe, glitzy Sharm el Sheikh is the crowning jewel of the Gulf of Aqaba. It’s not just a diver’s paradise and idyllic fly-and-flop holiday destination, but a great base for forays into the Sinai Peninsula. The choice of hotels here is superb, with bars and clubs keeping Sharm lively well into the night.

Diving in Sharm el Sheikh

There are so many great dive sites off the coast of Sinai that even those who return yearly on Sharm el Sheikh holidays struggle to visit them all. The appeal here isn’t just in the crystal-clear waters, magnificent reefs and abundant marine life, but a series of sunken wrecks in the Gulf of Suez.

Beaches in Sharm el Sheikh

Beaches in Sharm el Sheikh

Sharm el Sheikh breaks centre around days spent on the beach or by the pool. Most hotels have their own private stretch of sand.

  • It’s just a short paddle into the water from Old Quay Beach in Ras Mohammed National Park to reach a spectacular section of reef teeming with fish.
  • There’s a long pedestrian promenade backing Naama Bay’s beach, perfect for a morning stroll when you can take your time picking the perfect lounger spot or beach café.
  • If you want to snorkel right off the sand, Ras Um Sid is the top choice. The main beach here has an array of bars and restaurants backing the sand.
  • Hedonism rules at Terrazzina beach, where the cocktails and DJs are as just as big a draw as the golden strand.
  • For blissful beach access without leaving your hotel, be sure to book a resort that’s all about ocean access. The Sunrise Arabian Beach Resort has a 250m stretch of beach and a jetty running out to a shallow reef.

There are plenty of spots where you can escape the crowds on holidays to Sharm el Sheikh, whether you’re looking to snorkel or simply soak up the sun.

  • The best way to ensure a calm spot for a sunrise swim is to book into an adults-only resort. In place of pools and kids’ clubs you’ll find Ayurvedic massages and private cabanas.
  • Ras Mohammed’s delightful Aqaba Beach is the perfect spot to soak up the park’s natural beauty. You can swim out to the Eel Garden dive site just offshore.
  • Some resorts, including the Rixos Premium Seagate, have their own stretch of protected coral reef. Back onshore, villa suites here even come with their own pools.
  • North of Nabq Bay, the Nabq Protectorate is one of the last areas of wilderness of the Red Sea coast. Come to explore the world’s most northerly mangrove forest and pristine dunes.
  • For a different vibe, head up the coast towards Dahab, where a chilled out backpacker atmosphere prevails, even at the busiest times of year.
