Sharks Bay, the beautiful cove some four miles north of Sharm el Sheikh, on the consistently warm waters and clear skies of the Sinai peninsula, remain among that area’s most popular. This is principally due to the fantastic diving opportunities on offer, with a great reef housing multicoloured fish and corals that prove a spectacle for old diving hands and newbies alike!
But there’s more to this resort than meets the eye. It has everything you would expect from Egypt holidays, but where holidays in Sharks Bay excel is in the diversity of entertainment and activities on offer. Whether you are coming on holidays to Sharks Bay with the whole family or for a romantic break for two, you’ll revel in the intoxicatingly chilled out atmosphere!
Things To Do on Sharks Bay Holidays
Aside from the area’s superlative diving, there are plenty of sights to see here both underwater and on dry land! Divers can check out the wrecks of the WW2 Thistlegorm merchant vessel, or the 19th Century steamer, Dunraven, with glass fish and rays pouring in and out of their hulls. Or stay dry on a visit to Mount Sinai, with the oldest open church in the world, St Catherine’s, replete with an ancient library. For the kids, there are plenty of wildlife reserves here in Sharm, as well as a diving museum and the Fun Land Theme Park nearby.
While on safari, you’ll probably come across the Bedouins, a mountain tribes-people who delight in showing you their homeland as well as desert survival tips. For a taste of suburban life, there’s always the markets and bazaars in Sharm’s Old Town, replete with jewellery and food stalls, and plenty of festivals, from the Coptic New Year to the camel races in April, not to mention a fishing competition open to all tourists in July!
Sharks Bay holidays find you ensconced comfortably in a paradisaical resort just up from Sharm el Sheikh, with it’s amazing nightlife that never ends! Have a ball at the casino or the nightclubs on Naama Bay, open into the wee hours, take a stroll through the cosier English pubs and cocktail bars in the town, or simply chill by the beach with your beverage of choice and watch those gorgeous sunsets.
