Enchanting attractions

One of the most beautiful attractions is the Al Sahaba Mosque. Not only the exterior is worth a look: the inside of the mosque seems straight out of a fairytale. Another unique sight is the Saint Catherine's Monastery at the foot of Mount Sinai. This is the Holy Mountain where Mozes received the Ten Commandments from God. Are you looking for a real local experience? Stroll through the old city centre and admire traditional water pipes, breathe in the aroma of fragrant spices and marvel at the sparkling Arabian lamps.

Underwater magic

Egypt and diving go hand in hand. Sharm el Sheikh is one of the best dive sites in the world to explore the underwater world. Head to Ras Mohammed National Park with its beautiful corals and unique marine fauna. With luck you may even spot dolphins, manta rays or sharks.

"In addition to diving and the desert, the weather is also a good reason to visit Sharm el Sheikh. Even in winter, there’s lots of sunshine.”

Explore the desert

The Sinai peninsula is mostly desert and makes for an easy outing from Sharm el Sheikh. Explore vast sand plains, try sandboarding or visit a Bedouin camp. The desert is also one of the best spots to stargaze and observe the planets. So extend your stay until after sunset and enjoy the show.
