The high visibility of the water surrounding Sharm El Sheikh offers superb diving conditions, and organised trips to the dive sites of Na’ama Bay, Ras Um Sid Cliff, and Sharm El Maya are some of the most competitively priced that you’ll find anywhere in the world.
A dive in the Red Sea will see you swimming with sharks, turtles and blue spotted stingrays; while more advanced divers can sample the delights of the Thistlegorm – voted one of the world’s top 10 wreck dives.
After a long day of diving or some arduous relaxation in the sun, it’s time to find a bite to eat and enjoy a couple of cocktails.
