Egypt Travel Destinations: Sharm el Sheikh


 Sharm el Sheikh


Sharm el Sheikh

With its unique location, in the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt is considered the strategic passageway, the meeting point between Asia and Africa, and the cradle of great civilizations.

It is no wonder that the stories of heavenly religions that dawned on humanity can be eloquently narrated by the soil of Sinai.

With its diverse features of environment that combine together history, tourism, industry and agriculture, it has become a main attraction for tourists, travelers and businessmen. Sharm El-Sheikh, the biggest and most important city of Sinai, lies at the southern flank of the Peninsula where the two gulfs of Aqaba and Suez meet with the Red Sea.

Sharm El-Sheikh, apart from its military strategic position, was considered for more than 25 years an isolated part of Egypt. Only after the liberation war and Egypt's victory in 1973, and the ensuing peace agreement, the wonderful city of Sharm El-Sheikh emerged as a promising resort laden with many prospective potentials of prosperity. Since then a new era emerged in the history of Sinai and its largest city.

Sharm el-Sheikh is one of the most accessible, popular and developed tourist resorts on the Sinai peninsula. Besides the superb diving facilities it has some of the best night spots in Egypt (Buddha Bar, Pacha and Hard Rock Cafe to name a few), as well as some truly spectacular hotels.
