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.

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.

Imagine yourself in one of the most beautiful and famous deep-sea diving paradises in the world. Your dreams of crystal clear water, magnificent corals, exotic under water flora and rare tropical fish all come true when you visit Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.I visited Sharm El Sheikh with alltoursegypt.com

I worked in Sharm as a Holiday Advisor for TUI Travel (Thomson & First Choice) and so I know the area of Nabq, where the majority of hotels are situated, well. When I first arrived everything was a bit intimidating, the airport was extremely small with no English staff, hundereds of people and men trying to get money out of my by carrying my luggage. However, once I got out of the airport and drove to my hotel none of that mattered as I was surrounded by hundreds of miles of desert.

Sharm El Sheikh has so much to offer as it can be a beach/sun holiday 12 months a year, as well as being a real adventure playground - families can do all sorts from camel riding to water parks and couples can also enjoy the likes of adult only snorkelling cruises (the snorkelling and diving in the Red Sea is one in a million) and of course, trips to Luxor, Cairo, Petra and Jerusalem.

Egypt does have a reputation for two things though: diarrhoea and haggling. And unfortunately, both are very true. But, if you take care of yourself, watch your food, drink plenty of water and learn the phrase "fil mish mish' (in your dreams), you will be absolutely fine!

Sharm El Sheikh is a great beach town on the warm Red Sea. There's also quite a bit of history here.
