Excursions & Sightseeing in/from Sharm El Sheikh:

  • Sharm Old Town – Take a cab or local bus to the Sharm Ancient Town and ask the driver to take you to the old market. For visitors vacationing in the Na’ama Bay region, this is a very different experience. The majority of Sharm is less than 25 years old, so don’t expect to witness a Moroccan-style ‘Souk’! Ignore the touts outside each business unless you are serious about purchasing. Remain adamant in your choice of how much to pay.
  • Na’ama Bay is Sharm El Sheikh’s tourism hub; an interesting and rather strange sight for a westerner are the massive fans blasting fresh air and water to street cafés and terraces near hotels. Na’ama Bay is essentially a collection of hotels and spas that share the same beach line.
  • A visit to the desert is strongly advised. Numerous excursions to the Bedouins, the magnificent Coloured Canyon, and White Canyon, as well as quad bike and buggy safari expeditions.

The more courageous should seek out a private guide who will accompany them on a camel trek over the highland desert. You’ll trek through hidden valleys, stop at secret oasis, and spend the night under a magnificent firmament.

  • Trips by boat and snorkeling to the stunning snorkeling locations in Ras Mohammed National Park and Tiran Island. For non-swimmers, a submarine or glass bottom boat is an excellent way to experience the Red Sea’s underwater ecosystem.
  • Cultural excursions in Sinai include Saint Catherine’s Monastery and Mount Sinai, where the prophet Moses is said to have seen God. Excursions from Sharm El Sheikh to Cairo, home to the world-famous three pyramids, the Sphinx, and the Egyptian National Museum, or to Luxor, ancient Egypt’s legendary city. Additionally, tours to adjacent countries like as Petra or Jerusalem are available.
  • A day trip to Dahab It’s a wonderful relaxed vacation with a completely different atmosphere than Sharm. One hour distant over a hilly route that is best avoided at night. Taxis should cost 150le or 20le each way from the bus station, followed by a 5-10le ‘taxi’ (pick-up) into town. Take your driver’s phone number if you choose to go at a different time. The bridge is located in the heart of Toun, with a promenade on each side.
  • Every day, enjoy the sight and sound experience, as well as the live entertainment, at Alf Lela w Lela (A Thousand and One Nights). The live performance is incredible, with many presentations showcasing a renowned male belly dancer known as Mero, as well as other belly dancers. There were also several Egyptian weddings, tanourra dances, and performances. It’s a little down at heel, but it’s worth a look around.
  • Short travels to Aqua Park, Sharm El Sheikh’s biggest water park, Dolphinella, where dolphin performances and dolphin swims take place, and a crocodile display.
