- Build your idea about Sharm El Sheikh :
Are you Looking for a great beach destination?
The Red Sea’s warm water is great for swimming, and there are miles of great beaches in Sharm El Sheikh for working on your tan, but if you’re a diver, look no further. We’re talking enormous schools of fish and tons of excellent dive sites .
Not as good as you might expect – Sharm’s real attraction lies under the crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea, where pristine corals and a relatively unspoilt marine environment have made it one of the world’s top dive spots.
Did you ever tried to discover it ?,,,
The best beaches are in Na’ama Bay – pretty much the only place where bathers can walk straight from the beach into the sea for a swim.
In the other resorts, the proximity of the coral reef to the shore means that swimmers have to walk along piers or floating pontoons to take a dip.
At least, we have every thing you get in your mind, so just imagine and you will find all what you want ,
- About the diving there :
Diving is the main activity in Sharm el-Sheikh. When you dive into the warm water of the Red Sea and leave the remote desert behind, you will enter a world full of life and colours.
The reefs of Tiran and Ras Mohammed are known as two of the best diving-spots in the world. They can be reached by boat from Sharm within two hours. Ras Mohammed is the name of the southern most point of the Sinai peninsula. There, the current of the Gulf of Aqaba meets the Gulf of Suez. Due to the increase of plankton in the water the amount of fish is incredible. Huge schools of Barracudas, Sharks and Murrays can be seen there every day.
- The disadvantage of its popularity is that you may find up to 20 boats at the same reef. If you take a daily-boat you may enjoy your dive in the company of fifty other divers.
