Reviews of Sharm El Sheikh


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.


Sharm is charm.....this is the little words that may describe this amazing city , um in love with every thing in it... you can find there thousands types of rare fishes and acuatic animals that you need nothing to see them except a cheap snorkling glasses the restaurants , the night clubs , the diving centers and the safari trips.....GO THERE AND YOU WONT EVER REGRET

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.
