Situated four miles north of the popular Egypt resort of Sharm el Sheikh, Sharks Bay is nothing short of paradise. As a magnet for divers and those in search of true relaxation, Sharks Bay is an incredibly popular spot for an exotic African break. With consistently pleasant weather - even in December you can expect temperatures climbing into their 20s - the climate is a major draw for British tourists.
The crystal clear waters that surround the bay are more inviting than you can possibly imagine and it's no wonder the area is so popular with divers and snorkelers hoping to catch a glimpse of some underwater creatures as they swim around their coral home.
Whether the amazing diving opportunities appeal to you or you're drawn to the diverse range of entertainment and activities that are all within easy reach of the Sharks Bay accommodation complexes - the intoxicating atmosphere that this beautiful resort provides is enough to make all your sunshine holiday dreams come true.
St Catherine's Church, Mount Sinai
Mount Sinai really is a sight to behold. As the most accepted representation of the biblical Mount Sinai, this Egyptian mountain is visited by sightseers and pilgrims from all over the world. In the Bible, it was where Moses was given the Ten Commandments and in modern times, it's home to the oldest functioning church in the world, St Catherine's Church.
Why not incorporate a visit to the Mount and the church into a safari, with the chance to see the tribal Bedouins living proudly in their desert home.
Sharks Bay itself is a paradise resort that, while it does have a few nightlife opportunities scattered around, won't appeal to the hard-core party animals that are hoping for something a little bit more up-tempo. This is where Na'ama Bay comes in. Just a few minutes away, Naama Bay is full of glitzy casinos and nightclubs that will keep night owls entertained until the early hours, while the cocktail bars and English pubs will make you feel right at home.
Fun Land Theme Park
Perfect if you're travelling with family, youngsters will love a morning at this local amusement park. If you are planning on dragging the little ones around more cultural spots such as Mount Sinai, the least you can do is plan a visit to this fun-filled theme park as well!
Dive the Coral Reef
The coral reef in and around Sharks Bay is a haven for divers, from beginners right through to seasoned pros. The waters are also home to a famous WW2 shipwreck, SS Thistlegorm, as well as the 19th century steamer Dunraven. Dive into the depths to discover these sunken remains and spot the marine life that use them as their adventure playground.
Take a Nile Cruise
While you could remain on dry land for the duration of your stay, Sharks Bay would also be a perfect starting point for a memorable Nile cruise. The mouth of the Nile begins in Egypt and a cruise would be an amazing addition to your Sharks Bay holiday.
Shop in Sharm
With some superb shopping opportunities for shopaholics, Sharm El Sheikh is a major draw for anyone wishing to spend a little during their Egyptian break. Head for Sharm's old town if you're after bright and colourful markets that sell anything from spices to ceramics. You could walk away with many a bargain, or you could flash the plastic at one of the designer boutiques. The choice is yours.
A diver's sanctuary, Sharks Bay is incredibly close to the hubbub of Sharm El Sheikh while still exuding tranquillity and relaxation. If you're after a beautiful piece of sunkissed sand as a base for your holiday to Egypt, Sharks Bay is the place for you.
Sharm El Sheikh
From the bustling markets and vibrant nightlife, to the bays and coves scattered in the vicinity, it's easy to see why Sharm El Sheikh is a popular base for anyone in search of an exotic break by the Red Sea. With a wide choice of attractions nearby, it's impossible to be disappointed by what Sharm has to offer.
