But today, it is full of prestigious hotels, great restaurants, and recreational facilities. The weather is great all year round, and the water temperature never goes below 20 degrees Celsius. Here, you can admire amazing, picturesque bays, relax in the sun, experience the wonderful coral reefs, try parasailing, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, or just spend time actively taking in the charm of the Red Sea or the city's possibilities.

Most hotels are at a very high standard and also quite expensive, but you can also find some good quality hotels for a lower price.


When to Visit Sharm El Sheikh?

Spring and fall are warm, and tourism is fairly slow then. It’s a good time for those looking for a good deal.

Summer is hot and is the busiest tourist season. The area is full of people, but also full of fun. And winter is the second-busiest period in Sharm El Sheikh.


How to Get to Sharm El Sheikh

Airport

Sharm El-Sheikh Airport is the largest international airport on the Sinai Peninsula; after the most recent expansion of the terminal, it has become quite modern and comfortable.


Sharm el-Sheikh Seaport

Ship routes are limited to regular lines to Hurghada (approximately 2 hours), as well as excursions and tourist routes organized in generalby large tourist offices.


Sharm El-Sheikh Bus Station

The bus terminal here allows you to make connections with buses to Cairo, Suez, Ismailia, Luxor, Alexandria, and many more important Sinai towns.


Getting Around in Sharm El Sheikh

Taxi

Taxis are plentiful in Sharm El Sheikh. Since the city is not big, you should not have to pay more than 300 Egyptian Pounds for the ride. It is recommended to use the hotel’s taxi service since they are usually safe, clean, on time and have air conditioning.


Street Taxis

Registered street taxis are white and blue with a “Taxi” sign on the hood. It is better to catch a taxi that is already in motion since the parked ones are waiting for tourists who will pay an exorbitant price. Always set a price before you get into the car, and make sure it is in the currency that you intend to use. Also, it is advisable not to pay before arriving at your destination.


Blue Service Buses

There are local minibuses that go all around the main roads in Sharm El Sheikh. They all start from the Old Market and go to two places: Hadaba and Nabq.  They are very cheap, but the level of service is very low.
