    Pretty horrid to be honest! It does what it says on the tin, sun, sea and sand, with constant heckling from people selling their wares of their restaurants. It's best to get out and about and do as many day trips as possible. We did a full day snorkelling and went quad biking in the desert. Both were far better than the town itself! Good for a cheap package holiday with friends, but little cultural value.

    Sharm itself is a bit of a dump -- way overbuilt and filled with unattractive hotels that are way past their prime. That said, Sharm is a great base for excursions further into the Sinai (St. Catherine's Monastery, Mt. Sinai, Dahab) and for underwater exploration. The diving here is absolutely world class.

    Как картинка из книжки старинной,
    Услаждавшей мои вечера,
    Изумрудные эти равнины
    И раскидистых пальм веера.

    This is a nice site to go to the beach and do a desert excursion but don't expect to experience the real Egyptian life as it's a pure Tourist Resort destination.

    Imagine yourself in one of the most beautiful and famous deep-sea diving paradises in the world. Your dreams of crystal clear water, magnificent corals, exotic under water flora and rare tropical fish all come true when you visit Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.I visited Sharm El Sheikh with alltoursegypt.com

    I worked in Sharm as a Holiday Advisor for TUI Travel (Thomson & First Choice) and so I know the area of Nabq, where the majority of hotels are situated, well. When I first arrived everything was a bit intimidating, the airport was extremely small with no English staff, hundereds of people and men trying to get money out of my by carrying my luggage. However, once I got out of the airport and drove to my hotel none of that mattered as I was surrounded by hundreds of miles of desert.

    Sharm El Sheikh has so much to offer as it can be a beach/sun holiday 12 months a year, as well as being a real adventure playground - families can do all sorts from camel riding to water parks and couples can also enjoy the likes of adult only snorkelling cruises (the snorkelling and diving in the Red Sea is one in a million) and of course, trips to Luxor, Cairo, Petra and Jerusalem.

    Egypt does have a reputation for two things though: diarrhoea and haggling. And unfortunately, both are very true. But, if you take care of yourself, watch your food, drink plenty of water and learn the phrase "fil mish mish' (in your dreams), you will be absolutely fine!

    Sharm El Sheikh is such a relaxing and beautiful place, I stayed in Dahab which is very small and easy to navigate around, the whole town is right up along the Red Sea and it is so breathtaking. The town has lots of restaurants and shopping areas along the boardwalk and people are very very friendly! Also if you are big into any sort of watersport/diving/etc you will have plenty to do! There's also lots of companies on the boardwalk that offer tours to Mt. Sinai or Jeeping Excursions in the desert, and I would highly recommend partaking in these adventures!

    For Scuba diving or snorkeling, none better. For a quiet, relaxed time, stroll around town, no bars but cafes and restaurants for all tastes, be it Egyptian, Lybian, Indian, Chinese or a burger and chips, also a large shopping Mall.
    Take a tour to Ras Mohammed Park and swim in the lagoon or visit St. Catherines`s Monastery and Mount Sinai

    One of the best places to snorkle. The town is just build for tourists, so that´s not very attractive, but the see! lovely corrals and thousands of coloured fish.

    Sharm El Sheikh is a great beach town on the warm Red Sea. There's also quite a bit of history here.

    We lived in Maadi Egypt outside of Cairo and traveled to Sharm quite often. We camped on a the beach - rather private then(1987-1994). got up and went diving walking right into the Red sea!! then cooked our meals over campfire. it was the top spot to dive back then. Snorkeling and diving is a must if you go to this area.

    This Red Sea resort town on the tip of the Sinai peninsula offers world-class diving with spectacular reefs, magnificent drop-offs and shipwrecks waiting to be explored. Dive among the sharks (and barracudas and turtles and ...) at the aptly named Shark Reef or earn diving certification in the gentler waters of Na'ama Bay. Take a day trip to St. Catherine's Monastery, the reputed site of the biblical burning bush, or find yet more postcard-perfect waters at the Ras Mohammed National Park.

    Stayed a couple of times at the Gonsola Gardens. Highly recommend it. Just off the promenade with lots of beach chairs. Nice clean beach area.

    Sharm El Sheikh is rated as one of the best diving sites in the world with high water visibility/purity and exquisite reefs. Try out the kite surfing as well, such an amazing experience. We also recommend a desert safari and a magical night looking up to the clear sky and the stars with a warm delicious cup of bedouin tea.
