What can you expect from a holiday in Sharm El Sheikh? That all important combo of sun, sea and sand for one - and plenty of it!
Based on Egypt's beautiful Red Sea coast, Sharm el Sheikh is hot stuff. This vibrant holiday resort serves up a classic beach environment with glittering golden sands (which are generally burning hot by mid-morning, so bring some sandals!), fabulous hotels, a bustling resort centre and plenty of local activities.
One thing that Sharm el Sheikh has become famous for in recent years is its superb scuba diving. Join a local group or sign up with the local PADI school and you could soon be dipping beneath the waves, exploring rainbow-coloured corals and getting up close and personal with the Red Sea's spectacular marine life.
If you've got family holidays in mind, Sharm el Sheikh is alive with family fun that's ideal for kids of all ages, and maybe even the parents too. There are plenty of watersports on offer, and more than a few boat trips. Whisk the kids off for a glass-bottomed boat tour of the local shores, where they can peer through the boat into the clear, shimmering waters below, or enjoy a gentle excursion along the Red Sea coast, taking in the sights and sounds of this beautiful corner of the world.
You'll also find a fantastic selection of hotels that are well suited to family holidays. Many hotels in Sharm offer a high standard of accommodation, the majority of which are all inclusive or offer a full board dining arrangement, complete with extensive menus - perfect for little fussy eaters! If you're here for a couple's retreat or a fun-filled group getaway, there are plenty of swanky hotels offering suites and swim-up rooms, along with stacks of night-time entertainment.
So whatever you fancy from your Red Sea escape, there's a Sharm el Sheikh holiday with your name on it...
