The Bays

Sharm has become one of the top global destinations for snorkelers and divers thanks to its beautiful and diverse sea life, and its sandy beaches have become very popular with holidaymakers. Naama Bay is by far the most popular of them, and its long, sandy beach is a favourite among swimmers and sun bathers. It is buzzing with life thanks to its many restaurants and shops. Come here to try out the Bungee catapult or take up horse riding sessions. If you prefer it more quiet, spend a day at Nabq Bay, which is situated outside of the main tourist area, or spend a day on Sharks’ Bay, about a 20 minute taxi ride from Naama Bay. Ras Um Sid, located west of Naama, is great for snorkelling. Situated about five minutes’ drive from Sharm, it is famous for its stunning coral reefs and boasts an impressive cliff. If you are interested in diving, Sharm El-Maya should be your point of reference. The bay, located near Sharm’s Old Town area, is home to a number of diving centres that will show you the best waters in Sharm. When picking a diving school, however, make sure the school has been accredited by a professional diving association.
