El Fanar

by Lindaboardman

Hi,
I am staying in Naama Bay and was wondering if anyone had been to El Fanar for the day?
What was it like, is it worth the trip, how much are taxis, do you literally just ask for a taxi to El Fanar???

yes you can just ask the taxi driver to take you to Al fanar. But as far as i know it is not a day long trip.
cheers

The only El Fanar I know of is the public/private beach under the lighthouse in the Ras um sid area of Sharm.The right price for a blue bonnet taxi from Naama bay is LE15(£1.50) but to get home again the taxis at the entrance to the beach will want a lot more.Walk down the steep steps to get to the beach,beds are LE15 each.Well worth a visit,the snorkelling is top class,swim out in a straight line over very shallow coral for 50 metres and suddenly you will come to the drop off,swim round to the left for walls full of fish.A stunning snorkelling/diving site.

Hi,
There are two hotels located in the centre of Hadaba - Iberotel Club Fanara (http://www.iberotel-eg.com/fanara/) and Club Faraana (http://www.ventaglio.com/).
I suppose you meant one of them :))
The map of Sharm el Sheikh with hotels is here http://sharm-el-sheikh.ovh.org/index.html

Thanks for your help. Just fancied a bit of a change of scene from the beach in Naama Bay and had heard good things about the beach at El Fanar (not to mention the food at the restaurant).

Is it literally a case of just swimming out across the reef from any entry point until it drops off then Mr Small?

Thanks :)

Yes,thats about it.Head straight out over the dead,pretty shallow reef,you think "there nothing here",but keep going and suddenly you will come to the slightly shallower fringed reef then out over the most beautiful coral garden.Probably the best I have seen.
