Sharm-el-Sheikh is where Egypt emulates the Mediterranean – coral reefs, crystal waters, great nightlife, great marinelife, the mountain where Moses got his commandments, go karting, swimming with dolphins, quad biking, camel trekking, para sailing, swimming with sharks… ok, maybe it’s a bit more the Mediterranean offers. Called the City of Peace for the sheer number peace conferences that have been held here, this resort town is one Egypt’s most popular travel destinations. Whether you’re diving for the Technicolor coral reef or heading our for some fun spirituality into the desert, the city serves you well. It’s especially popular with Britishers. Each of the activities here has many operator companies providing optimised and specialised tours..
