One of Egypt’s oldest and most popular holiday resorts, Sharm El Sheikh wins fans for its breathtaking location on the Sinai Peninsula. The Red Sea coast provides white-sand beaches and some of the finest diving in the world, with crystalline waters teeming with underwater life, wrecks and coral reefs. As well as the diving, Sharm El Sheikh is the ideal place for desert safaris, where you can ride camels through the dunes and camp out under the stars.
