Sharm el Sheikh Departures

Thanks to its growing reputation as a diving resort, Sharm-el-Sheikh has boomed in popularity in recent years. It’s also a great base for exploring Egypt.

The bustling ‘City of Peace’ next to the Red Sea

Just 40 years ago, Sharm-el-Sheikh was a fishing village with a population of 100. Today, it’s one of the most popular destinations in the Arab world, famous for its perfect snorkelling and diving conditions. The coast lines the Red Sea, which has waters warm enough to go for a relaxing swim. It’s also easy to head out and see the pyramids and Sphinxes from the town.

Around 9,000 Brits visit the town every day, so there’s no need to worry about language barriers or culture shock. There are also familiar food and drink chains alongside local restaurants with some more traditional items on the menu.
