Diving in Sharm El Sheikh
The Red Sea is considered to be one of the top diving locations in the world, the Red Sea is every diver’s dream come true. With an enormous variety of colorful corals, marine life of all shapes and sizes, wrecks that take you back through time, and a crystal-clear visibility, diving in the Red Sea is, simply put, HEAVEN! The sea in the Gulf of Aqaba is almost invariably calm with temperature varying between 18 C in winter months to 24 C in summer. All diving is shore based as Aqaba offers fringing reef which commences at the shore line. There are no off-shore reefs to warrant boat diving. The soft and hard coral formations are spectacular and there are many species unique to this area.

Ras Mohammed is the National Park of South Sinai and located on the very tip of the Sinai Penninsula, it probably represents some of the most famous dive sites in the Red Sea. 800 metre deep reef walls and pounding current on one hand, and on the other, some of the most beautiful coral gardens you can imagine. The seas around the point are very rich in plankton and other foods giving tremendous growth of stony and soft corals which in turn attracts large schools of reef and pelagic fish. The easy food source in turn attracts barracuda, jackfish, tuna and shark.

And if this is not enough, then perhaps shopping is the thing which will keep you busy. Shopping malls with all the possible brands are located all over Naama Bay, Nabq (including such malls as La Strada and Al Khan) and the Old Market.
Still want more? So perhaps you can enjoy the events organized in Sharm for the community, like concerts of mainly Egyptian and Arab-world singers. Such events are organized by La Strada, for instance, one of the leading shopping centers in town. They also organize shows and surprises for children, so a visit to one of them is absolutely a must once you travel with your kids.
Shopping is also a thing commonly spread in Sharm. Souvenirs and spices, belly-dancing suites and jewelry as well as footwear and clothes of the leading brands are all found in Sharm. The prices are naturally higher than in a non-touristic place, but at the same time Sharm is so diverse that it offers different prices, so all you have to do is search…and you will find.
