Sharm Reef Beach - A typical beach on Oum el Seid

by swisssinai

Below is a picture of Sharm Reef Beach - typical of the many little coves and beaches surrounding Oum el Seid Hill in Sharm el Sheikh.

Not much sand, no play area for kids and a bit of a climb... but ...

the water's super clean and great for snorkeling !

Snorkelling and beaches

by thebrownz

We went to three different beaches. They were all wonderful in their own right.
The first was the hotel beach. Most of the hotels have their own beach. Ours was set out similar to any ordinary beach – a bit of sand and shallow sea going deeper and deeper the further out you get. The difference being that not too far out, some of the sea bed turns into coral. You are forbidden to stand on this and the lifeguards will blow their whistles and shout and scream until you get off it. The answer is to swim over it and only put your feet down where it is sand.
The second beach was a public beach which was man-made. You pay about 50p to spend the day at this beach but it is well worth it. There is a restaurant, a place to buy cold drinks and proper toilets. In the price you got a sun bed with a mattress and a big sun shade brolly thing. The sand was on a flat part of a cliff and to get into the sea there were swimming pool steps off a little jetty. The fish here were absolutely amazing but there is nowhere at all to put your feet down. It is like being in the deep end of the pool. I think this beach was called Sharm Reef beach.
The third was again a public beach but was not a beach for snorkelling. It was one for relaxing and for enjoying the various water sports like a banana boat or the donuts etc. It was called Terrasina beach. Can’t remember if we paid to get in here but if we did it would have been about 50p - £1. There was a restaurant, (Which I would recommend) toilets, a bar, beds, mattresses sunshades etc. Again a good day out. This is by far the best part of the trip. I could not believe that there were so many different fish in the sea and that you did not have to be in the middle of the ocean to see them.

Accomodation in Sharm el Sheik

by noushymoo

Hello everyone, I am looking for accomodation in sharm just for one night, nothing too expensive, but about 10 places I have emailed have not emailed me back. Does anyone know anywhere to stay that you can book online, or is it easy enough to find somewhere when you get there?

Thankyou!!

Come on , try harder...

I just ran your request through hrs and it gave two low cost alternatives sharm reef and falcon hills, both in the region of 28 - 35 euro for the room per night ( one including half board ). Both these hotels are on oum el seid and thus only 10 mins taxi drive from the port or bus station.

if this is over your budget then head for Dahab. My recommendation would be to go anyway straight to dahab as you wont waste time checking in and out of a hotel in sharm for one night.

Looking for a Hotel

by moug

Hi, I would like to spent one week month May with my husband but we hesitate between two hotels. Could you please give me your feedback?
Hotel REEF OASIS BEACH RESORT
Hotel LTI Grand Azure RESORT

Thanks a lot

Re: Looking for a Hotel

by swisssinai

I have nt visited either but know that the Grand Azur is at Nabq which is pretty far from Naama Bay. The beach at Nabq is flat but very shallow - you have to walk out pretty far before it gets deep enough to swim.

However, if you are not interested in the shops, restaurants and cafes at Naama Bay and just want to relax by the sea then take Grand Azur.

Travel Tips for Sharm El Sheikh

shopping

by catherineneill

when you're shopping you will be pulled into every kind of shop (mostly perfum) and be offered 'some egyptian traditional hospitaliTEA' - a funny flavoured tea in a glass. we did this in every shop but never bought anything. they told us it was rude to not accept, i am not sure if this is a custom or if it was just to hold us hostage until we bought something.

Diving in Sharm el Sheikh - Red Sea Dive College

by mtcowgirl

I've been diving in Sharm el Sheikh for the past three years and it one of my favorite places. The water is crystal clear, there are tons of fish, and the dive centers are top-notch.

For the past two years, I have dove with Red Sea Dive College which I highly recommend. Besides, my recommendation, the dive center was also voted the Best Dive Center in 2006 by readers of Diver (http://www.divernet.com).

The three best locations to dive are Ras Mohammed, Tiran, and of course, the Thistlegorm Wreck which can all be reached by day-boat. Diving in Rah Mohammed National Park incurs a daily charge of 5 Euros per day but the diving is great. There are many dive boats that go to Ras Mohammed but the sites don't get too crowded because there are many different places to dive.

Diving in Tiran is also wonderful, especially one site called Aquarium which gives you an idea about the fish life. However, Tiran does get a bit crowded due to the number of dive boats that go there and the limited number of sites.

The Thistlegorm wreck is reputed to be one of the world's best wrecks. Sunk by the Germans during WWII, the British supply ship was headed to resupply troops in Alexandria, Egypt. German warplanes looking for the Queen Mary dropped their bombs on the ship and sank it on 5 October 1941. Today, the ship is still full of motorcycles, Wellington boots, airplane parts, tanks, guns, artillery shells, and all sorts of interesting fish life. The Thistlegorm is a wreck that I don't mind diving again and again over the years...in fact I've been there each year. The trip to the Thistlegorm does normally incur an extra charge with the dive center. Currently the supplement is 72 Euros. You can rent all the necessary equipment from RSDC. The equipment is in good condition and they have all sizes from children to XL-adults. Equipment rental for a complete set is 30 Euros per day.

Because I dive so often, I do travel with my own equipment and just take weights...I'm thinking that the weights do not incur a charge.

If you are interested in purchasing dive equipment, I'd recommend the dive shop right next to RSDC which if I remember correctly is called Maison De La Mer. There is also an excellent dive shop called Beyond Limits in the Naama Shopping Center on the top floor. Both shops sell internationally recognized brands such as Cressi and Mares.

The two items that I recommend everyone own when diving are easy to travel with and make life much more comfortable. The two things that I think everyone should own themselves is a mask and a set of fins. I don't know how many times my friends have complained that their fin rentals didn't fit and they ended up with blisters (especially those with super large feet) or had a problem with water leaking into the mask because a particular style did not fit their face correctly. Mask and fins aren't that expensive compared to other scuba equipment...and owning your own really does make life easier!

Drugs in Sharm

by Saladinos

Sharm Al Sheikh is not the same like amsterdam and cristiano in denmark . You cant walk around in a place to choose and buy some joints and other drugs. It is illegal here in Egypt to buy, sell or smoke and use drugs. The punishment reach capital punishment for dealers and maximum 6 years for users.

This doesnt mean that there is no access to smoking in Egypt but there are lots of people who do smoke hash and marijuana.

Dont get trapped with stupid guys.
