Sharm, an Egyptian Star
Sharm El Sheikh, on the Sinai Peninsula, is Egypt’s most popular holiday resort. Sharm, as it is known, pulls in around 9,000 Brit visitors a week, who love it for the miles of white sand and clear water. Some of the world’s best diving sites are dotted just off the coast, and away from the shore there’s designer shopping and lively nightlife in spades. No wonder its star is still rising.
Sharm lays claim to 60 kilometers of coastline. Most hotels will have their own stretch of beach, with ice-white sand and gently lapping shores. Of course the main attraction here is the Red Sea, teeming with colorful and richly diverse marine life. It’s enough to get even the most dedicated beach bum to strap on a snorkel for an underwater adventure.
