Things To Do In Sharm El Sheikh

The major attraction of Sharm el-Sheikh is diving. When you step into the warm waters of the Red Sea and leave the desolate desert behind, you will encounter a world teeming with life and color. Divers, particularly photographers, must be buoyant to prevent injuring the delicate coral reef system. It should be noted that several hotels in Na’ama Bay have removed the coral reef from their stretch of beach so that visitors may utilize it.

  • Tiran and Ras Mohammed reefs are two of the top diving locations in the world. They may be accessible by boat in two hours from Sharm. Ras Mohammed is the name of the Sinai peninsula’s southernmost point. The Gulf of Aqaba current joins the Gulf of Suez current there. The number of fish has increased dramatically as a result of the rise in plankton in the water. Every day, huge schools of Barracudas, Sharks, and Murrays may be spotted.

The drawback of its popularity is that up to 20 boats might be seen at the same reef. If you board a daily boat, you may enjoy your dive with fifty other dive guides and around ten divers in each group.

  • The SS Thistlegorm wreck is widely recognized as one of the best wreck dives in the world. However, owing to strong currents and a portion of the dive being in an above environment, it may get quite congested with divers and is certainly an expert dive.
  • Divers that are more savvy will go on a diving adventure. You escape the crowds at major diving sites and have the opportunity to explore stunning reefs well beyond the reach of any daytripping boats. A diving safari does not cost more than everyday diving and saves you a lot of worry. Check out your preferred yacht online and make sure the photographs are up to date!

Horseback riding

Stables at Sofitel Hotel. Personnel who really are helpful. Helmets are required (and supplied); many pairs of riding boots are available. Offer to give your horse a shower after the ride. Bambi and Kelly have been named the quickest horses. Too far from the desert: on a 2-hour trip, only 40 minutes are spent riding in the desert; the rest of the time is spent getting there and returning. For 2 hours, select stables on the outskirts of the desert. EUR45 for two hours.

Quad bikes

There are dozens of operators who seem to take the same route, duration, and sequence of stops: as you travel, you will encounter several groups that go the same path as you. The course has numerous incredibly wobbly sections that seem like they’re on a washboard.

Wear a long-sleeved shirt and shoes instead of sandals. Wear a helmet at all times, and ensure sure your travel insurance covers this activity. Expect grey dust to coat your clothing (and skin).

A non-professional cyclist will be satisfied with 2 hours of riding; anticipate frequent pauses along the route. It’s best to start your ride after 4 p.m. or later to catch a sunset and return while the air isn’t too heated.

Choose a bike towards the front of the motorcade at the start: being one of the first helps you to travel quicker and creates less dust.

  • Tiba Safari / Tiba Trip. Many agencies sell it. Groups of 10-15 motorcycles are permitted; two people per bike are permitted (although bikes are originally designed for a single person). Berber tea is very dangerous to your stomach, as has been shown several times. The group is escorted by a vehicle equipped with a camcorder—video is not worth purchasing, and the car causes a lot of additional dust (you can’t do much about it unless your whole party requests in advance that no video be made at all). $20 for a single bike for two hours; $25 for two persons using the same bike for two hours.

Stay on the road and listen to your guide, since Egypt has one-quarter of the world’s landmines hidden in its deserts, some of which are unexpectedly near to Sharm el-Sheikh.

Para sailing

Sailboating is a lot of fun. However, for a trip of less than 5 minutes, they charge 260 pounds for two people and 220 pounds for one person.

Camel trekking

The ideal spot to accomplish this is in the Sinai desert on a camel excursion with the Sinai’s. After that, you may gaze up at the desert stars at midnight after a home-cooked feast prepared by the Sinais themselves.
