Package holidays to Sharm El Sheikh fly jet-setters over five hours away from the UK to the heart of the Red Sea Riviera. Whether you opt for a stay in Nabq Bay, Naama Bay, Sharks Bay or Um El Sid, Sharm El Sheikh is the dream destination for adventurers keen to enjoy coral explorations, rejuvenating stints on the beach and designer shopping sprees.
Travelling to Sharm El Sheikh at the height of summer, you can expect temperatures to reach anything up to 40 degrees C. If you’re planning on visiting with the little-ones you may find that travelling slightly out of season is easier. Spring and autumn are a good time for young families to fly over to Sharm El Sheikh, when temperatures are more manageable for everyone.
The beach resorts of Sharm El Sheikh are quite similar in holiday style, with just a few differences between them. Nabq Bay is one of the quieter, more unspoilt areas of Sharm El Sheikh, known for wild ‘unsupervised’ snorkelling and impressive deserts, which are ideal for quad driving.
Unlike the other Sharm El Sheikh resorts, Naama Bay has a good selection of nightlife based outside of its hotel complexes. With its cafes, bars, clubs and bazaars, Naama Bay is the best base for travellers who enjoy venturing out from their hotel environment to enjoy a bite to eat, or an evening drink. Of course, there is also access to watersports and beach facilities, as on all Red Sea stays. It is this versatility that makes Naama Bay a popular choice with British holidaymakers.
It isn’t uncommon for guests to head to Sharks Bay purely with the intention of learning how to scuba dive as the area is famous for its fabulously warm waters and captivating corals. However, families will find Fun Land Theme Park close by for a fun-filled day out, as well as the evening entertainment of neighbouring resort, Naama Bay.
Um El Sid lies slightly outside of the main Sharm El Sheikh holiday hot spots, yet has close connections with both Naama Bay, Old Sharm, and the Il Mercato shopping centre.
Although holidays in Sharm El Sheikh holidays are predominantly designed to provide relaxing retreats, adding sightseeing excursions to your holiday couldn’t be easier. It’s possible to team your stay in Sharm El Sheikh with a visit to Luxor and Cairo, or opt to board a river cruise down the Nile.
