Sharm El-Sheikh at a glance

As one of the most established resorts along the Red Sea Riviera visitors can enjoy popular Na'ama Bay or explore the quieter Old Town.

Surrounded by a crystal-clear blue sea and a stunning desert landscape, Sharm el-Sheikh is far more than a resort town. Olympic Holidays features many beautiful hotels which can be the perfect base for a beach holiday or to explore Egyptian culture.

While diving is a top sport at Ras Um Sidd, there’s fun for everyone including camel rides in the desert, guided climbing in the rugged mountains, visiting St Catherine’s Monastery, a Turtle Bay boat trip, the Coloured Canyon and Ras Mohammed National Park.

A day out to the historic site of Mount Sinai is really worth considering.

Shopping is a real Egyptian delight with Bedouin handicrafts, jewellery and precious stones, spices, leather bags, embroidered goods and superb Egyptian linen.

For winter sun, it’s pleasantly warm with temperatures similar to a British summer while summertime sees the heat soar to around 40C.
