This desert resort town sits in the Sinai Peninsula along the Red Sea. With 75 000 people living there, it’s a popular place to enjoy the beauty of Egypt. We spent one day in this amazing city, but we really made it count with all the activities we did. Once there, all there’s left to do is sit back, relax by the beach and have fun in this paradise town.
1. Visit the Old Market
This place is a great spot to find gifts, souvenirs and anything else you might need. When we went down there, it was pretty empty due to religious reasons, but there were still many great shops open.
2. Hang out at the beach in Naama Bay
This beautiful beach has everything you need for the perfect relaxing time by the sea. You can sit down on a sunbed, have a bite to eat and unwind near the waves.
3. Rent a boat
We managed to negotiate a boat rental for just $38 an hour, and it was an amazing time. It allowed us to see much more of the beautiful surrounding areas, as well as do some swimming.
4. Snorkel around the reefs
Once we had the boat, it was easy for us to stop near the corals and snorkel around them. It was very beautiful, and definitely something you should do if you are in the area.
5. Go dolphin spotting
We were lucky enough to see dolphins near us, and after following them with the boat, we even got pretty close to them. We had such a great time on the boat rental, and this was the cherry on top.
6. Check out the restaurant and nightlife scene
Once you’re on the main street, you’ll be able to see all the different venues all around you lit up. There’s something for everyone, from nightclubs, to restaurants, to places to just stroll and enjoy the view
After exploring this amazing city for a full day, this is everything I did. However, it’s a place you can spend much more time in. There’s definitely much more to do and see in Sharm El Scheikh, so you won’t be disappointed if you plan some more time there. Of course, feel free to explore on your own as well. I hope you have a great time there, and I wish you happy travels!
