Destination of the Week - Sharm el-Sheikh

Sharm el-Sheikh

Once a small fishing village, this Egyptian port at the bottom of the Sinai peninsula is well-known for it’s luxury resorts, superb diving conditions, and striking landscape where desert meets the sea. While the obvious activities include soaking up the sun, swimming, snorkeling and diving, there is more to explore than what lies beachside. Take a trip into the desert and see the beautiful Coloured Canyon, White Canyon or even enjoy some extreme fun with quad bikes and camel rides. Go parasailing, dive the wreck of the SS Thistlegorm, or even rent boat and have your own seaside adventures, but check out our top picks when in Sharm el-Sheikh.
