Book your airport hotel before flying
Sharm El Sheikh

The Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh has been named as the world's number one site for diving, according to Cheapflights.co.uk.

The resort has become renowned among travellers looking to experience the underwater wonders of the Red Sea, and has grown into a lively hub of activity where memorable daytime excursions can be complemented by a lively and exuberant nightlife.

Such is the popularity with diving among the protected coral reefs - and where colourful marine life including clown fish and reef sharks can be spotted, the website placed Sharm El Sheikh above the world's other great underwater destination, the Great Barrier Reef.

For those travellers looking to experience the wonders of the region themselves, Gatwick Airport is among the UK airports offering regular flights to Sharm El Sheikh. And what better way to prepare for your diving adventure than by booking an overnight stay near the airport and eliminating the need for any last minute rushes.
