This is the view looking over sharkes Bay, we got a taxi to take us there and back for approx £8.00 the journey was probobly 30-40mins each way.
There are a few restaurants on the beach front and of course the coral reef which John tells me was very good. I was more intrested in the camels on the beach, there was a mother with her 6 month old baby camel. They where offering rides on the beach for approx £2.00.
A very nice snorkeling spot (without sharks!)- check this:

Try to go to Near Garden,Middle Garden and Far Garden, these divingspots are VERY spectacular and it´s just close to the beach, It´s almost as good as Ras Mohammed
Fabulous beach and very safe snorkelling. Snorkel from the jetty if you prefer but it's equally safe to snorkel from the beach.
A friendly beach and a great restaurant if you walk a little further down (Umbi Seafood restaurant).
Charges for this beach are LE15 per person with an extra LE5 each (50p) for sunbeds.
