Rapidly emerging as the go-to spot on the Red Sea Riviera, at Sharm El Sheikh tourism meshes with the ancient traditions of the Sinai. Its clear, calm waters are ideal for snorkelling and diving. More than 250 reefs and 1,000 species of fish inhabit local waters. If you prefer to stay dry, shop at the souk in Old Sharm, where stalls are filled with collectibles such as rugs and tapestries. Savour a traditional meal in one of the open-air seaside restaurants and take in the amazing view.
