Naama Bay Tips (35)

The lively centre

Na'ama bay is the centre of all action in Sharm-el-Sheikh. Everything lives to tourism and from tourism. The beach is segmented in several private concessions, with a band of less than 20 meters considered public beach, which means that you don't pay the access to a restaurant or hotel, but... to... them!
During the day it's a sleepy town, awakening at sunset to fill the bars and restaurants. Each night, the program is the usual - strolling, drinking, listening to loud music.

Go to sleep - tomorrow there will be more fish to see!

Public Beach

Three lines of shades form... the public beach. Even if you don't want to use the chairs, you have to pay the entrance (10 Egyptian pounds).

Public? Well, I don't know the conditions to enter the private ones, but "beach" is not exactly the best in Naama bay

Markets, bars, eating out and diving.

Travel outwith the resort and explore other places after you have spent a day or two in the place because a couple of days is enough in Naama Bay and Sharm El Sheikh for anyone, unless you went simply to lounge about your hotel area and nothing much else. The diving is ok but avoid the PADI stuff, you don't need it and you will gain nothing from it either. If you really need professional diving lessons, get them anywhere bar Egypt because absolutely NOTHING should be trusted in this country, especially so-called diving qualifications and the like.

Let's be honest, if their airport officials are corrupt (i.e attempting to blatantly steal my iPhone at an x-ray checkpoint as i was leaving, be wary of taking such devices to Egypt in general as im sure they get away with it from those too spooked by the intimidatory behaviour to refuse giving up personal belongings to these corrupt so-called officials) then it doesn't bode well for pretty much anything else.

I also recommend avoiding all the market traders (hawkers) like the plague and whatever you do, DO NOT talk to them in English!! If they ask where you are from, just say 'no understand' every time and if they ask where you are from, tell them you are from Romania and say no more. Walk on and accept NOTHING in the way of their hospitality or anything else as it will only lead to an attempt to either blatantly rip you off or the other tact of guilting you into parting with cash.

If they know you are from the UK, it's simply a nightmare to shake them off and the amount of horror storoes I heard, from the Egyptian hotel staff and rep concerning British tourists in Naama Bay were shocking and i'm glad and extremely fortunate for the advice i got before venturing into town. There are the odd few traders that are genuinly decent (like the watch trader in a wee side market and the place that I organised excursions from who were fantastic as were their trips) ans bargains are to be found if you like your fake bling and watches.

Pascha and Space are mince to be honest (unless lecherous Saudi's and Egyptians sleazing over your girlfriend is your idea of a good time) oh, and there are Russians everywhere! The Russians in Sharm El Sheikh outnumber the Egyptians!

Organise a few excursions and enjoy the rest of Egypt, it's quite cheap and an ideal way to see the historical sights and places...but always be extremely wary wherever you go, do not let your guard down anywhere in this country as being from the UK seemingly means you are wealthy beyond belief and are in Egypt to simply fill the pockets of the locals, including the police and as I personaly experienced, airline security personel also and unless you want to blow you holiday budget within a couple of days, DO NOT interact with anyone apart from those essential like taxi's (taxi drivers--always negotiate a price BEFORE you step foot in the cab) and the odd trader and whatever...use common sense if you have it....if you don't, stay away from this country. It is beautiful in many respects and the weather?? Bliss!

There is so much to see and do but you need your wits about you more than anywhere I have ever travelled previously...and that says something in itself considering some of the places I have been to.

Do not use the local buses or taxis in sharm, the drivers are ripping off the tourists by stating that the buses are finished at 10am and they are taxis, this is a lie. myself and a friend got on a bus that the driver stopped outside of naama bay and we were threatened to pay more money there was another bus in front which also stopped , we were 2 women over 60 and this was frightening, however we managed to get off of the bus and run into a nearby hotel for help, this bus stopped along peace road way out from most hotels. we were followed by the driver of the bus and friends from the other bus. Taxis are exploiting the english tourists and charging up to 100 egyptian pounds for a fare. Please only use hotel transport never local transport. This is the worst experience of my life and we have been going to egypt for 5 years but now I would stay in my hotel resort and never venture into naama bay again, too frightening, do not trust anyone other than hotel staff

Take the Kiddies to Cleopark

With more than 47,000 sqm of space, Cleopark is the first waterpark in the Sinai. Boasting more than 50 lifeguards on duty, the waterpark is the perfect place to take the kiddies for fun on Eygptian themed rides and regular waterslides.

There are seven different attractions and six slides. Depending on the age of the kiddes (5-50!) there is something for everyone from regular fun to hair-raising plunging slides. Some adventures require innertubes while others are normal waterslides.

The park is open from 10am until sunset all year round.

The Beaches

The city has many wonderful beaches where you can sit and relax in the sun and then take a nice dip into the ocean. Some of the most popular beaches in the area are Ma'ama Boy and Shark Bay.

You can swim in the warm waters, snorkel, and go scuba diving. The underwater world is just as beautiful as the world above, and you will be able to see a variety of marine animals, including colorful fish, sharks, manta rays, and turtles.

Naama Bay Nightlife

I suggest going only at night since the place is lit up amazingly, and very very safe and comfortable for tourists. in fact it is over ridden by tourists, either arab,, european or american. I met a wonderful Libyan family just visiting Sharm as a vacation, which i though was cool that even to people within arabic world, they also love to visit egypt's treasures. its very good compared to the nontouristic cairo. Naama Bay is extremely developed and is simply a joy to walk around in. The walking paths are so great through the shops, but are neccessary due to the amount of tourists.

Sitting down on the bench i spoke to a native Egyptian teaching at Sharm univeristy, and he was telling me his anger at how his city has been tooken over. lol

Naama bay has plenty of shops, clubs, outdoor shisha bars, entertainment shows, casinos, restaurants and souvenir shops. Pasha is the biggest club in town, but cover is 26 euros, so i said screw that. other highlights include The belly dancing shows occuruing in various shisha bars or restaurants. its expensive.

Na'ama Bay: beachlife, colourful fishes

The first day at the beach I went into the water for a try-out of my snorkling gear and the new underwater cover for my digital camera. From the beach I saw two spots where some people were snorkling.

When I arrived there in only a few minutes, It surprised me to see just in front of the beach lots of colourful fishes, swimming around two small pieces of coral reefs. I couldn't recognise all the types of fish, but anyway I saw a blue coloured parrot fish, lots of black & white sergeants majors, yellow butterflyfishes and red sea banner fishes.

Of course the huge coral reefs of Ras Mohammed are much more impressive, but for me it was a nice surprise to be able to have this close encounter, just coming out of my hotelroom at the first day.

Na'ama Bay: beach life

Along the seaside of Na'ama Bay is a long sandy beach. Most hotels have their private beach, but there is also a public beach. The first time we stay at the eastern side of the bay and frequented the beach of the Sonesta Beach Resort. The second time we stayed opposite at the western side of the bay and frequented the beach of our Helnan Marina Hotel.

It's the place for sunbathing, playing beachvolleyball, relaxing, having a massage, swimming and even snorkeling (there are some minor reefs and lots of colourful fishes just in front of the beaches), but also for boating, sailing or making a trip with a glass bottom boat. It's a nice mixture of activities, but also a striking mixture of types of swimmingsuits from topless till swimming suits covering the whole body.
