Hiya

Check out http://www.weatheronline.co.uk/Egypt/SharmElSheik.htm

by the way it's 30 C at the moment! Evening temperature is variable. It wont be cold as such, but take a sweater as could be anything from12 C to 21C in the evening. The sea is at its coldest I think in Febraruary, but still about 21-22 C, so okay to swim in, but use a wet suit if you are going to be out for a long time.

Snorkeling in Sharks Bay

by Watsy

Hi folks, my wife & myself will be staying in the Sharks Bay area next month (probably Coral Beach Tiran hotel) and I'm a real snorkeling lover. From what I gather the entire Sharm area is top notch but some areas can be better than others.

Would anyone know how the Sharks Bay area compares with the rest of the region & would it be advisable to take a trip to any specific part where I can be assured of seeing the real beauty of the Red Sea.

By the way I have a diving certificate (BSAC Ocean diver)although I haven't dived in 2 years now, is it worth going on a diving trip? I found when I was in the Maldives that snorkeling was just as good as the diving so I hadn't really planned on diving in Sharm.

Regards.

It is all very good along the entire coast of the south sinai but I think the best thing you can do if you only fancy snorkelling is to take a trip to the straits of Tiran and snorkel around any of the 4 reefs there.There are special boat trips just for this but we found that the dive boats (some do take snorkellers aswell) are cheaper and not as half as crowded.

Travel Tips for Sharm El Sheikh

great weather

by ilovehols

water sports r a must, but beware even hotels private beaches r over crowded. There is very little to do by day unless you want to sit in 100 degrees, swim or go on an excurtion, but at night naama bay picks up with shops ,bars and very cheap restaurants. the people r friendly and helpful.

My favorite shoal

by pikuu

I liked to swim just over the shoal of these small, silver-yellow fishes, probably from Goatfish genus. They moved like one system and it was really nice to hang half meter above them and observe this multi-specimen organism.

Ladies, What to Wear?

by mtcowgirl

One of the common questions I see is what should ladies wear in Sharm el Sheikh? Honestly, from the times I have been in Sharm el Sheikh I've seen all kinds of clothing frombarely-there miniskirts and tube tops to full burka.

The local population is fairly conservative but after many years of catering to tourists, I think they have gotten used to the fact that not everyone is sensitive to their way of life. Women who do dress provacatively do naturally get called out...and not just by the local men. There are plently of tourists who will get randy when they see a good looking girl dressed up to go out...and even more so after a couple drinks.

Unlike Cairo, women do not need to worry about covering their arms and legs but I would recommend dressing more conservatively than miniskirts unless you want to call attention to yourself. Basically, if you don't want to be hassled by guys, dress conservatively with resort casual clothing, shorts, and t-shirts. I normally run around in shorts, t-shirt, and sandals and the guys never bother me when I'm walking around other than to get me to their stores (another topic all-together!)

Out on the beach and dive boats, bikinis are fine. Topless bathing is not recommended and it's not just the local guys that will stare/drool. Even my European friends were whispering behind their hands about girls on another boat who were sans-tops (just like high school!) But to be respectful to the local culture, ladies please keep your tops on!

Dont bring warm clothing

by claus9000

Insect repellent can be useful. Never forget, it never rains in Sharm and even the winter has temperatures of 25 degrees at daytime. Summers are hot with more than 40 degrees in the shadow. You will need warmer clothing maybe in the airconditioned restaurantt of your hotel.

St Catherine monastery

by magino88

Pretty cool place, a little too touristy

The diving is excellent, loads to see.

Took a little trip to the St Catherine monastery which is on Mount Sinai. Around 25 Greek Orthodox Monks live there, one has been there 15 years. They have a slightly maccabre ceremony everyday where they bring out the head and hand of St Catherine, who was persecuted and killed for her Christianity.

Interesting to note that the Monks allowed a mosque to be built inside the monastery walls next to the church so that people of all faiths are welcome to worship there. The place has so much history and relevance in Biblical terms, housing the alleged burning bush and situated under Mount Sinai where Mosses received the ten commandments from God.

Amazing scenery and well worth going on some of the tours.

Naama Bay is pretty cool, went to check out Pacha, man what a club!!!!

Good time, although the place seemed to have been invaded by Russians seeking longer days and a bit of sunshine.
