    What once used to be a desert with only few Bedouins inhabiting it, turned into a great diving, entertainment and shopping center! This electronic guide made by people who have been living here for more than a decade will provide you with the most accurate, true-to-life, practical information and useful tips which will ensure you get the most of your vacation.
    If you are one of those who came here in order to explore the rich world of Sinai with its amazing variety of Activities, games and entertainment, then you can choose one of the following: Aqua Parks, Sinai Desert Trekking, Parasailing, Go Karting, Water and Wind Sports, Kiting or a romantic Bedouin Dinner under the starlit Sinai sky. If adrenaline is not for you, then perhaps you can lie lazily on the beach, enjoying every moment. Top Sharm Beaches are provided with telephone numbers, addresses and some useful tips on the cost of tickets, restaurants and bars located on the territory of these beaches as well as activities, services and parties run there.
    Naama Bay – which is considered to be the heart of Sharm, due to its large amount of cafes, bars, pubs and restaurants, is definitely a must for those who like to party. Yet if you prefer to spend your time away from the busy life of Naama Bay and you are looking for a meditative place to rest in, then National Parks are just for you. You can take a nice trip to the famous ST. Catherine and admire the graceful Mount Sinai, or you can enjoy the peace in Ras Muhammed, Taba, Nuweiba or Dahab. Everything depends on your taste and preferences. You choose!
    Want to explore the underwater world of the Red Sea? Then Diving and Snorkeling are just for you. Not only we provide you with a thorough directory of all the possible Diving Centers in town but we also included the most interesting spots for divers, tips and courses which you can take.
    If you don’t know what to do at night, don’t worry as Sharm has much to offer starting from its cozy CAFES in Bedouin style, located all over Naama Bay, and luxurious restaurants with cuisines of all nationalities and Pubs, Bars, Casinos and Dance Floors that you could ever wish for. We thought it would be practical to include prices and schedules into this section so you could fully benefit.
    And if this is not enough, then perhaps shopping is the thing which will keep you busy. Shopping malls with all the possible brands are located all over Naama Bay, Nabq (including such malls as La Strada and Al Khan) and the Old Market.

    "Wild" snorkling in Nabq Bay

    by om_212 Updated Nov 30, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nabq Bay, a quiet bay located a half an hour drive from Na'ama Bay, offers incredible opportunity for “wild” (unguided) snorkeling experience along with good views over to Tiran Island. The advantage of the place is that it is still relatively wild, semi-free from the hotels (the Louis Tiran Sharm Hotel is to open in Jan. 2009), so if you are lucky, you can have an irresistible 1,500m-long sandy beach and endless sea just for yourself.

    The corals there are very different from what you can see in Sharks Bay and the Ras Muhammad Park. Additional advantage is that the sand entrance to the water (pretty rear in this area), allowing you to walk in barefoot.

    To fully enjoy the place, bring water/snacks, sun umbrellas, etc. as this place lack even basic infrastructure. The place is also pretty windy, therefore be cautious about getting too far away, as there are no safeguards to help you out.
